Men’s Health Week: 14-20 June 2021
This year’s Men’s Health Week focuses on what it means to have a team.
Good health is about being the best you can be in your situation. It’s important to prioritise your physical, emotional, and social health by staying connected and seeking support early if something is wrong, from a team of people who care about you and your wellbeing.

A team is a group of people, all working together towards a common goal.

We suggest you have a doctor, or GP, on your team at all times.

About Healthy Male
Healthy Male (previously known as Andrology Australia) is a national organisation, established in 2000.
We are a provider of information for men’s health. We facilitate action on men’s health in collaboration with others, advocate for change, empower men and boys to take action on their health, build the capabilities of the health system and workforce, and prioritise our efforts to close the health and wellbeing gaps in specific groups. Ultimately, we are working towards our vision of generations of healthy Australian men.
Our aim is to make the information we provide available to everybody, regardless of gender, age, education, sexual orientation, religion or ethnicity. To do this, we collaborate with Australia’s leading researchers, specialists, clinicians and educators to develop information that fills the gaps in men’s health.
