Men’s Health Connected was AMHF’s response to COVID-19 in 2020. ‘If we can’t hold the National Men’s Health Gathering in its 25th year,” reasoned CEO Glen Poole, ‘we’ll take it online.’
But instead of the usual one-week Gathering bringing the men’s health sector together for wide-ranging discussions about everything impacting the lives of men and boys in Australia, including the 10th Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Male Health Convention, AMHF decided to amplify the occasion.
Four weeks of online seminars, every day, with literally 100s of speakers and leaders in men’s health. Many well-known researchers and practitioners, others working tirelessly in the field to get a better deal for blokes, building services and organisations with men’s health and wellbeing in mind. This was the Men’s Health Connected online summit.
- 1,500+ people signed up to take part and 150+ speakers shared their expertise.
- There were 100+ hours of conversation and 75+ men’s health organisations across 50+ sessions and five weeks.

Correct, we aren’t stopping with one online summit. Men’s Health Connected will return in May with a full-scale program.
We wholeheartedly invite you to take part in these events in a number of ways. For example: volunteering to help us behind the scenes, making suggestions for speakers and topics, taking a front-seat role as a speaker or panellist, spreading the word once registrations open and joining in the many forums that Men’s Health Connected will present.
