The MHF has leapt into the world of Wikis.
The Forum has started entries for men's health and Men's Health Forum on the popular Wikipedia site, an online encyclopedia that readers can edit themselves.
MHF CEO Peter Baker says 'the mens' health entry is currently very short but it obviously has the potential to be expanded significantly and to branch out into entries for different issues as well as countries.'
The Forum is urging all members and supporters to add content from time-to-time so that the entries will develop into a history of men's health as well as an account of the key issues.
'It is our hope that, at some point, this entry could be used as a key source for a published history of the men's health movement and become a useful starting-point for researchers and others with an interest in this field.' Peter added. 'We know that Wikipedia, as an open-access forum, has obvious limitations and even some dangers. On balance, however, we feel it offers the best opportunity available to develop a much-needed resource.'
Please forward this information to any of your contacts who might also be interested. If you are involved with any journals or publications, do consider publicizing this initiative so that as many people as possible have a chance to contribute.
