Men’s Health Week 2024

International Men’s Health Week runs each year 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. This year’s theme of Men’s Health Checks invites us to look at the many ways we can support men’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing to live happier, healthier lives.

For 2024, Men’s Health Week is 10-16 June. Throughout the week we shared stories and information in support of men in the bleeding disorders community on FacebookInstagram and LinkedIn.
