Men’s Health Awareness Week

10 June 16 June

International Men’s Health Week (MHW) always begins on the Monday before Father’s Day and ends on Father’s Day itself.  During 2024, it will run from Monday 10th until Sunday 16th June.

MHW 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 the week are to:

  1. Heighten awareness of preventable health problems for males of all ages.
  2. Support men and boys to engage in healthier lifestyle choices / activities.
  3. Encourage the early detection and treatment of health difficulties in males.

Each year, there is also a specific theme.  During 2024, the theme for Ireland will be ‘Know Your Numbers’ and the key message to everyone is men’s health counts.
