Men's Health Week Australia

Building Healthy Environments for Men and Boys

International Men's Health Week is celebrated every year around the world (opens in a new window) in the middle of June. It is an important opportunity to highlight the importance of men's health, and to promote and support the health and wellbeing of men and boys in our communities.

Men's Health Week focuses on not just physical health, but also men's mental health and emotional wellbeing. During the week, we highlight the health challenges faced by men in Australia and worldwide and run events that can be replicated year-round to improve the physical, emotional and mental health of men and boys.

Through a series of promotions, events and publicity around the country, Men's Health Week is designed to provoke thought and discussion about what needs to be done to improve male health.

The theme of Men's Health Week 2022 is Building Healthy Environments for Men and Boys - focusing on creating physically, mentally and emotionally healthy environments in the home, workplace and in social settings.

Coordinated in Australia by Western Sydney University

Men’s Health Week is coordinated by Western Sydney University. Our close connections with community and government organisations across Australia enable us to develop the kinds of networks and partnerships that bring together people who care about better health for men and boys.

Engaging Communities

Men's Health Week works on the understanding that the best people to improve men's health in Australia are those who live, work and engage with men and boys in communities around the country.

To support their efforts to engage with men and boys, the Men's Health Week website (opens in a new window) provides tools to register and promote community events and provides contact details so that interested people can find out what is happening and who to talk to. The Men’s Health Week team is currently developing resources to support Men’s Health Week 2022. Please keep an eye on the website for new resources over the coming months.

Event organisers will receive digital event packs to support their efforts in engaging local men and boys and help them run successful events during Men's Health Week.
