Men’s Health Week
Men’s Health Week was started in the United States by the US Congress in 1994 to heighten awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.
In 2002, the 2nd World Congress Of Men’s Health was held in Vienna and brought together six leading men’s health organisations including MHIRC to run international events in June each year, just before the United States and United Kingdom Father’s Day.
The Vienna Declaration set out to establish:
- Recognizing men’s health is a critical issue and that there are health issues which only affect men;
- Promoting awareness of men’s approach to health;
- Changing the way health care is provided to be more sensitive towards men’s needs;
- Creating school and community programs which target boys and young men;
- Connecting health and social policies to better pursue men’s health goals.
In Australia, Men’s Health Week provides a platform for challenging and debating key issues in men’s health and to raise the profile of men, their health outcomes and health needs around the country each June.

Dr Brett Dellar
Dr Brett Dellar has worked in the health industry as a chiropractor since 2003, is a qualified life coach and studied extensively in the personal development field which stemmed from his own journey having suffered from depression for nearly 30 years (and was able to come through the other side).
Brett understands how and why men struggle and has a passion to inspire and empower others to take that next step to change their future.
As a result Brett founded “The moMENtum Revolution”, an organisation designed specifically to help men with online programs and one day workshop and two and a half day boot camps.
