The month of June is men’s month. This month consists of the Father’s day which celebrated differently around the world but dates within the month and the men’s health week which starts on 11th June and ends on 17th June.

The International Men’s Health week 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). Its 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.

Men’s Health Week is celebrated annually to honor the importance of health and wellness of boys and men. This Father’s Day month June was chosen as the anchor to make use of the extra attention paid to male family members near that holiday. Men’s Health Week provides an opportunity to educate the public about what can be done to improve the state of men’s health while providing free and convenient health services to boys and men who wouldn’t otherwise receive such care.

I plan on doing an activity every year in June under Kuteesa Foundation and its programs to celebrate and honor men in my life.
