Men’s Health Week runs from 12 to 17 June 2017. This initiative, designed by an all-island planning group, aims to start the conversation about improving the health of males by asking: ‘How are you doing?’. The Health Service Executive in the Republic of Ireland and the Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland co-funded the publication of an updated Man Manual.
Men’s Health Week is one of the actions highlighted in Healthy Ireland - Men Action Plan. IPH has been involved in the development of the mens health strategies in the Republic of Ireland. In 2010, IPH published Facing the Challenge - The Impact of Recession and Unemployment on Men’s Health in Ireland.
