Welcome to The Men’s Health Association. Our association has been formed to address the key health challenges facing men living in Southern Africa. (The term “men” is used throughout the association’s communication to refer to males of all ages).
OUR VISION IS: for all men living in Southern Africa to enjoy optimal health.
OUR MOTTO IS: “Own Your Health”. That means that you have to take the time and trouble to understand what is necessary for good health, and that you are ultimately responsible for your health. This website will provide useful information to enable you to understand how your body works and what can go wrong. However, it is not a substitute for the advice provided by competent healthcare professionals. These are the people who can assist you with your lifelong journey to obtaining and maintaining good health.
If you are an adult male then good health starts with knowing your current health status. To assist you we have compiled a health risk assessment questionnaire (see the men’s health challenge under resources) which will guide you through the various criteria that help to assess your current health status. There is also information on the critical age appropriate screening tests that are essential to enable your healthcare professional to detect diseases in the early stages.
We have a team of leading medical specialists (see our leaders) who’ll be providing us with the latest information as it becomes available, so check out our (news) section regularly to see what’s new in the field of men’s health.
