How are services to men affected by Covid-19?
The Forum is investigating how services to men are being affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. All organisations providing services to men are asked to complete a short survey.
Forum CEO Martin Tod said:
Covid-19 is increasing the demand for some services, reducing the demand for others - and, in many cases, making it harder to deliver them.
We're keen to understand the impact of Covid-19 on organisations supporting men's health - whether they relate directly to Covid-19, or to the consequences of self-isolation, or whether they relate to other men's health issues - which remain no less urgent as a consequence of COVID-19.
Can you fill out this quick survey? We've tried to keep it to a minimum so that it's quick and easy to complete.
To support men's health during the current pandemic, we want to publicise the services that are out there so that men can find what they need more easily.
It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.
Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.
