All Party Parliamentary Group on Men's Health

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Men's Health exists to raise awareness of issues surrounding the health of men.

The Group was established in early 2001 and was set up as a result of a new level of awareness about the state of men's health. 

The Men's Health Forum provides the secretariat to the Group - it helps organise meetings and produce briefings.
