This year, Men’s Health Week (15 – 21 June) is focusing on the theme of ‘Take Action on COVID-19’.
Led by the Men’s Health Forum, a national charity with a mission to improve the health of men and boys, Men’s Health Week will encourage men to take action to protect themselves and avoid spreading the virus as well as advising them how to get the best out of the lockdown and the ‘new normal’.
A recent report by Public Health England highlighting differences in the risk and outcomes from COVID19 identified the risk of dying among those diagnosed with the virus was higher in males than females.
