"A men's health issue is a disease or condition unique to men, more prevalent in men, more serious among men, for which risk factors are different for men, or for which different interventions are required for men" (Fletcher 1996)

Men, on the island of Ireland, experience a disproportionate burden of ill-health.

The Men’s Health Forum in Ireland (MHFI) is a diverse network of individuals and organisations, men and women, which seeks to ...

  • identify the key concerns relating to male health;
  • increase understanding of these issues;
  • tackle the impact of this inequality.

MHFI works on an all-Ireland basis to enhance the health and well-being of men and boys through research, advocacy, training, networking and demonstration projects.  The work of MHFI is heavily reliant upon the input of volunteers.

The Forum is registered in the Republic of Ireland as a Company Limited by Guarantee (491368) and is accepted as a charity by the Revenue under Reference Number: CHY19591.
