Led by Men’s Health Network, representatives from six leading men’s health organizations around the world met at the 2nd World Congress on Men’s Health in Vienna, Austria in 2002 and resolved to work together to launch International Men’s Health Week (IMHW). The goal is to increase awareness of male health issues on a global level and to encourage inter- and intra-national institutions to develop health policies and services that meet the specific needs of men, boys, and their families.
The history of International Men’s Health Week and Men’s Health Month can be found here.
