International Men’s Health Week (MHW) is an annual event that ends on Father’s Day. During 2019, the week was held from Monday 10th to 16th June.
Men’s Health Week is held in most European countries and a number of other places worldwide.
The overall aims of MHW 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.
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 , healthy activities and events across our locations. In 2019, talks were held across our sites Ireland, UK, Denmark, Switzerland and Holland.
