Men's Health Week, June 10 to 16 2013 - Helping health services to help men and boys

Men's Health Week is different from many health promotion campaigns. Often you'll see campaigns that aim to shock, scare, compel or otherwise encourage people in the community to do 'more of this and less of that'.

We think that there is a real opportunity through Men's Health Week to empower people on the frontline of health to work with and reach out to local men and boys and find out what can they can mutually achieve to live more healthy lives where and as they live.

Local communities are the best placed to take a stand on the health issues that result in statistics like 'five times more males than females take their own lives each year' and 'men can expect to live four years less than women.'

The 13th Australian Transplant Games, Newcastle, September 29 through October 6

Australia’s most inspirational sporting event, the Australian Transplant Games, is held every two years. The Games provide living proof of the success of transplantation and encourage all Australians to discuss organ and tissue donation with their families.

The 13th Australian Transplant Games will be held in Newcastle, NSW, from September 29 through to October 6, 2012. The Games will bring up to 1,000 competitors and their families from all across Australia and various other countries together in Newcastle to celebrate their renewed life. For many people, competing in the Transplant Games provides an added incentive to regain health and fitness following a successful transplantation and are an important step on the path to returning to a normal life. Others use the Games as an opportunity to meet and socialise with fellow transplant recipients. For all competitors however, the Games are an opportunity to demonstrate how they are living life to the fullest following their recovery.

Population Health Congress 2012
Associated Event
SUNDAY 9 SEPTEMBER 2012 
2:00pm - 5:00pm 
Meeting Room 6, 
Adelaide Convention Centre 

Funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing and implemented by the Melbourne School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne, the Australian Longitudinal Study on Male Health will address current gaps in knowledge on the health of Australian males, who continue to have shorter life expectancies and poorer health outcomes than Australian women. 

The study will recruit 58,000 Australian men and boys aged 10-55, oversampling younger males and males from rural and regional areas. Participants aged 15-55 will self-complete a mail questionnaire, and boys aged 10-14 will complete a face-to-face interview. Wave 1 data collection will occur mid-2013, with follow-up waves every 3 years.
