Men’s Health Week 2023

June 12th to June 18th

Men's Health Week 2023

International Men’s Health Week (MHW) always begins on the Monday before Father’s Day and ends on Father’s Day itself.  During 2023, it will run from Monday 12th until Sunday 18th June.

MHW is celebrated in many European countries, as well as in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and a number of other places worldwide.  The overall aims of the week are to:

  1. Heighten awareness of preventable health problems for males of all ages.
  2. Support men and boys to engage in healthier lifestyle choices / activities.
  3. Encourage the early detection and treatment of health difficulties in males.


Cork Sports Partnership is delighted to highlight a number of initiatives and events with a number of partner agencies and services, including Cork and Kerry Community Health Care, GAA Healthy Clubs, FAI, ParkRun and community bike rides.
