HISTORY

A History of Men’s Health Week

In 2002, representatives from six leading men’s health organisations around the world met at the 2nd World Congress on Men’s Health in Vienna, Austria and resolved to work together to launch International Men’s Health Week (IMHW).

International Men’s Health Week (IMHW) has been celebrated in New Zealand for several years but never as a cohesive nationwide campaign. The Men’s Health Week campaign has been running since 2003 and was launched for the first time in NZ in 2010. Men’s Health week has been very successful in New Zealand with huge support from buisnesses, community groups and indviduals as well as the media – giving some publicity to our men!

Other countries were also running men’s health week. The UK, USA, Canada, Hong Kong and other European countries also had their own weeks and days set aside to promote male health issues.

The aim of IMHW is to increase awareness of male health issues on a global level and to encourage inter- and intra- national institutions to develop health policies and services that meet men’s specific needs.

  • TODAY'S TIPS FROM THE MASTERS: "BE SMART OUTSIDE IN THE SUN"
Cover up when working outdoors in New Zealand’s unforgiving sun. Put suncream on (at least spf 30), and reapply in your breaks. Wear long sleeves and a wide-brimmed hat when the hardhat’s off.

  • Time for bed? Did you know our bodies require long periods of sleep in  order to restore and rejuvenate, to grow muscle, repair tissue, and synthesise hormones. .
