Men’s Health in NSW Planning Meeting, August 13


Men’s Health in NSW Planning Meeting August 13  1pm – 3.30pm

Conference Room B Level 4 Ozanam Learning Centre, 99 Forbes Street Woolloomooloo

Dear MHFNSW Members and Supporters,

The NSW Ministry of Health will not be replacing the current NSW Men’s Health Action Plan with another plan or policy. New South Wales was the first government in the world in 1999 to produce a men’s health policy, which was followed in 2009 by the current NSW Men’s Health Action Plan which expired at the end of June this year. We know do not have any men’s health policy, plan or framework in place.

They have also announced that the Men’s Health Information and Resource Centre (MHIRC) based at Richmond in the University of Western Sydney will not have their current funding renewed as it has been since 1999 – instead men’s health work in NSW will be put out tender. This new tendering approach could spread men’s health and wellbeing work to potentially many organisations without experience in men’s health work and without any network or central organising body.
