International Men’s Health Week (MHW) always begins on the Monday before Father’s Day and ends on Father’s Day itself. During 2023, it will run from Monday 12th until Sunday 18th June.
It is celebrated in many European countries, as well as in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and a number of other places worldwide. The overall aims of MHW are to:
- Heighten awareness of preventable health problems for males of all ages.
- Support men and boys to engage in healthier lifestyle choices / activities.
- Encourage the early detection and treatment of health difficulties in males.
During 2023, the MHW theme for Ireland will be ‘The Picture of Health‘ and the call to men (and those who support the health of men) will be what does that look like to you?
The celebration of Men’s Health Week on the island of Ireland during 2023 is being funded by the Health Service Executive Health and Wellbeing and the Public Health Agency.
