Men’s health should be about wellness, not just illness. This reinforces the idea that men’s health is not just about male specific pathology in prostate cancer, fertility etc, nor just about the negative sociology of maleness associated with male suicide, men’s failure to commit in relationships, men and divorce etc. Men’s health is also about:
Promoting healthier lives for men
Fostering networks research that supports men’s health; and
Building on achievements already made
To increase regional awareness in Men's Health, the 1st edition of the Men’s Health Congress will open its doors to the public on its first day of inauguration. This will be a full day Round Table and Ask the Experts sessions at the event. This allows the public to interact with the experts and also the opportunity to hear from other members and individuals while networking.
The event is scheduled on Wednesday 13th December 2017 from 09:00 – 15:00 at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Academic Medical Center, Dubai Healthcare City, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
