GAMH webinars




The COVID-19 pandemic has made very clear the need for an urgent and comprehensive men’s health policy response.

This webinar will share information about progress on men’s health policymaking around the world and about how the case can be made for its further development.

There will be presentations on national men’s health policies, local men’s health policies, how men’s health has been incorporated into other health policies, current campaigns for men’s health policies, and plenty of time for discussion.

GAMH’s latest report, Delivering Men’s Health: A Guide for Policymakers and Service Providers, will also be launched at the webinar.

This event has been organised by Global Action on Men’s Health and its official journal, the International Journal of Men’s Social and Community Health.
