New All-Party Group set up

11/08/15 . News

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Men's Health has been reconfirmed following the general election and the group's AGM last month.

The contact for the APPG for this parliament is Conservative MP for Finchley and Golders Green Mike Freer. Mike will co-chair with Labour peer and former Men's Health Forum trustee Kamlesh Patel (Lord Patel of Bradford). The vice chairs are Lords cross-bencher Susan Cunliffe-Lister (Baroness Masham of Ilton) and Liberal Democrat MP for Carshalton and Wallington Tom Brake.

The Men's Health Forum will continue to provide the secretariat and all public enquiries to the group should be through the Forum.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

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.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
