International Men’s Health Week (MHW) is an annual event that ends on Father’s Day.  During 2018, the week was held from Monday 11th until Sunday 17th June.

Men’s Health Week is held in most European countries and a number of other places worldwide.

The overall aims of Men’s Health 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 focus upon a specific theme.  During 2018, the theme for the island of Ireland was ‘what’s your one small step to improve men’s health going to be?’ and across the UK was a focus on Diabetes.

Men’s Health Week gives everyone an opportunity to encourage men and boys to take better care of their health and to seek help or treatment at an early stage.

Each year, Ardmac teams mark Men’s Health Week by hosting tool box talks across our locations. In 2018, talks were held across our sites Ireland, UK, Denmark and Holland.
