Men's Health Forum


The Men's Health Forum is a charity that was founded by the Royal College of Nursing in 1994 that works to improve men's health services and the health of men.

In the UK, one man in five dies before he reaches 65. The charity aims to reduce the number of men who die too young because of preventable health problems through their advice, research and campaigning.

They believe that:

  • There is an urgent need to tackle the unnecessarily and unacceptably poor health and wellbeing of men and boys.
  • The health of the whole population should be improved through an approach that takes full account of the needs of both sexes.
  • Men and boys should be able to live healthy and fulfilling lives, whatever their backgrounds.

The charity works to achieve this through:

  • Policy development, research and lobbying
  • Supporting other organisations and services to engage more effectively with boys and men on health issues
  • Providing authoritive and unique health information for men - here at Male Health
  • Leading the annual national Men’s Health Week
  • Publishing the award-winning range of mini manual health booklets for men
  • Working with MPs and government
  • Developing innovative and imaginative best practice projects
  • Training service providers and others
  • Collaborating with the widest possible range of interested organisations and individuals.

They work across a number of health and related issues including cancer, workplace health, mental health and access to services, and their work focuses particularly on those groups of men with the worst health.  They also strive to ensure that they take account of the diversity of men and their needs.

Successes include campaigns for a screening programme for abdominal aortic aneurysms in older men and for the National Chlamydia Screening Programme to target young men as well as women.
