GAMH Annual Reports

Annual Report 2022-23

The period covered by our last two annual reports was dominated by the global COVID-19 pandemic, an event which constituted an immediate and urgent threat to the health and wellbeing of men. (By the end of March 2022, around 3.5 million men worldwide had died as a direct result of COVID-19 infection.)

While GAMH’s work in 2022/23 continued to be informed by the experience of and lessons learned from the pandemic, by April 2022 there was an opportunity to move the agenda on to a range of other important men’s health issues including cancer, mental health, men’s health in the Americas, men’s health in Ireland, men’s health in Africa, mpox, men’s use of general practice, men’s sexual health, the Lancet commission on gender and global health and, of course, Men’s Health Week. They’re all covered in more detail in the Annual Report 2022-23.

Promoting healthy eating to men may have positive health benefits but it can also reinforce traditional ideals of masculinity which can be more problematic for health. Interesting article in Men's Health Network
