Men’s Health Week: 15-21 June 2020

Why is having good health important to you?

Whether it’s to keep up with the kids, play footy with your mates, or start out on your own adventure — the importance of having good health is unique to everyone.

To make sure you’re able to do the things that are important to you, you need to look after your health. That doesn’t just mean fixing problems as they come up. Having good health means looking after yourself as a whole — including your reproductive and sexual health.

We know that reproductive and sexual health can sometimes feel like an awkward topic. So this Men’s Health Week, we’re starting the conversation through daily activities for you to get involved in.
