Men's Health Information & Resource Centre (MHIRC)
Men's health is now receiving considerable attention, both nationally and internationally.
The Men's Health Information & Resource Centre (MHIRC) at Western Sydney University promotes initiatives and research to address the health and wellbeing of all males.
MHIRC promotes a Primary Health Care view of men's health, considering the physical, social, political, emotional and spiritual environments and their impact on health issues.
MHIRC works with partner organisations on a variety of initiatives to highlight and address men's health issues, some of which include the rate of male suicide, barriers to health services and access, the role of fathering on men and their health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men's health and male youth health.
MHIRC has been situated at the University for over a decade and has benefited significantly from the support of donors in that time, with more than $230,000 in gifts to support its work. These gifts provide a critical supplement to government funding.
