Joining GAMH

GAMH WELCOMES NEW MEMBERS

GAMH is a worldwide membership-based network of organisations with an active interest in enhancing and promoting the health of men and boys within a gender equality framework.

The network was established in 2013 by eight organisations and was publicly launched during International Men’s Health Week in June 2014. Membership is now open to other organisations and individuals who want to become involved in this important initiative.

A wider membership will make GAMH more truly representative of the global men’s health movement and increase its credibility and profile with policymakers, funders and other organisations. Members will also bring to GAMH a broader range of knowledge, insight and skills that will improve the quality of its work and governance.

All members will benefit from:

  • Shared intelligence about developments in men’s health in individual countries and globally, provided via a regular members’ eBulletin
  • An opportunity to share information and network with other GAMH members
  • A profile on the GAMH website
  • An opportunity to support and contribute to GAMH initiatives and projects
  • Early alerts about GAMH events and registration at discounted rates
  • A reduced Article Processing Charge for papers published by our official journal, the International Journal of Men’s Social and Community Health

There are three types of membership: Full, Associate and Individual. GAMH also offers partnership affiliation for corporate organisations.

Full membership

Full membership is available to:

  • National ‘peak’ or ‘umbrella’ men’s health organisations that work across a broad range of men’s and boys’ health and wellbeing issues with a focus on public health and the social determinants of health.
  • In a country without a national peak organisation, men’s health organisations that are locally or regionally based will be eligible for membership, as will organisations that represent particular male sub-populations.
  • In some countries, there may be more than one peak organisation (e.g. there may be a peak organisation that represents all men and another for a minority group of men, such as men from a particular ethnic or cultural background , gay men, young men or older men); in this situation, all peak organisations are eligible to become Full members.

Full members have voting rights and are equal partners in the governance of GAMH as set out in the constitution. Applicants for Full membership are asked to confirm their agreement with a Declaration of Support for GAMH’s aims, objectives and values of GAMH.

Full members are asked to pay an annual subscription depending on their annual turnover. Membership is free to organisations based in low-income countries. The membership fees for full members are set out here.

It is possible to pay membership fees for 1, 2 or 3 years at a time. There is a 10% discount for 2-year memberships and a 20% discount for 3-year memberships.

GAMH recognises that some organisations may not be able to afford the membership fees and does not want this to be a barrier. It may therefore be possible to negotiate a lower fee and/or a payment schedule.

Associate membership

Associate membership is available to:

  • Non-peak men’s health organisations that work across a broad range of men’s and boys’ health and wellbeing issues.
  • Non-men’s health organisations, e.g. those involved in public health generally or with specific health issues, such as heart disease or mental health.
  • Organisations which focus on male-specific conditions (e.g. prostate or testicular cancer) or the male aspects of a gender-neutral issue (e.g. suicide) but not the wider range of men’s health issues.
  • Organisations that have an exclusively or largely clinical focus.
  • Academic bodies with a research interest in men’s health.
  • Government offices and statutory health services.
  • Private men’s health consultancies which are constituted as a company or similar.

Associate members are asked to pay an annual subscription depending on their annual turnover. Membership is free to organisations based in low-income countries. The membership fees for associate members are set out here.

It is possible to pay membership fees for 1, 2 or 3 years at a time. There is a 10% discount for 2-year memberships and a 20% discount for 3-year memberships.

GAMH recognises that some organisations may not be able to afford the membership fees and does not want this to be a barrier. It may therefore be possible to negotiate a lower fee and/or a payment schedule.

Individual membership

Individual membership is available to anyone with a professional or personal interest in men’s health.

Individual members are asked to pay an annual subscription. There is a lower membership fee for retired people and it is free to individuals based in low-income countries. The membership fees for individual members are set out here.

It is possible to pay membership fees for 1, 2 or 3 years at a time. There is a 10% discount for 2-year memberships and a 20% discount for 3-year memberships.
