Activity of Netzwerk Männergesundheit (Men's Health Network)
Aims and objectives
The Network for Men's Health is an association of professionals who deal with the issue of men's health. Over 100 members from different areas of men's health are involved in the network. The focus is on issues of boy's and men's health (ie. not primarily men's diseases). "Men's health" means the physical, mental and social health of boys and men of all ages. The network is an independent, non-commercial organisation and is neither sponsored by pharmaceutical companies nor (so far) by public funds. No interest groups are behind his work.
