Why is the UK having such a bad pandemic?

With Covid-19 statistics hardly out of the news, Radio 4's statistics programme 'More Or Less' wonders: Why Did the UK Have Such a Bad Covid-19 Epidemic?

The half-hour programme asks was it bad decision-making, bad advice, or bad luck? It's a good listen anyway, making a dry subject shine, but it also highlights why the Forum has prioritised calling for better sharing of better data.

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.
