We are seeking nominations for Best New Men’s Health Initiatives from new projects that were founded no later than 1 January 2020, or from established organisations who have launched a new initiative in that timeframe.

These could be GPs, nurses, social workers, psychologists, allied health workers or volunteers. We’re seeking nominations for those unsung heroes whose work is making a difference for men and boys at a local level.

In recent years there has been an explosion of online initiatives targeted at men and boys. We want to celebrate the great work of content creators and community builders, whose work aims to improve men and boys’ lives and heath.

We’re seeking nominations in three areas: early career researchers whose work in men’s health shows great promise; singular pieces of research that have made a significant contribution to men’s health; academics who have undertaken a significant body of men’s health research over a number of years.


Men’s Health Equity Award

Work to improve the lives and health of men and boys in Australia doesn’t just focus on the gaps between men and women, it also focuses on the many gaps between different populations of men. This year we want to highlight some of the great work that focuses on disadvantaged populations of men. This includes, but isn’t limited to: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders; culturally and linguistically diverse; rural and remote; LGBTIQ+, veterans, socio-economically disadvantaged, socially isolated, the homeless, men and boys in the criminal justice system, men and boys with disabilities, male carers and fathers facing adversity.


Local winners across each State and Territory will be awarded by popular vote and become nominees for the National Men’s Health Awards.
