Gender and Health through Life’ Conference in Copenhagen (14-15 June 2012).

This major conference, attended by over 200 delegates from across Europe, was supported by the Danish EU Presidency and organised by EMHF, European Patients’ Forum, the Danish Men’s Health Society and the European Cancer Patient Coalition.

The aim of the Conference was to bring together as many groups as possible, including: academics & researchers, providers of health training, employers, MEPs and MPs, organisations representing and supporting ethnic minorities, young people, older people, men and women’s organisations, public health practitioners/organisations, pharmaceutical organisations and patient focused NG0s, charities and other networks to debate and recommend better ways of approaching and delivering public health programmes.

The information and recommendations collected from the Copenhagen Conference will help the European Commission, national governments, NGOs and local strategy developers to take a more informed look at how their current policies meet the needs of men and to think seriously about how they tackle men’s health in the future.

More information about this conference is available from the Danish Men’s Health Society and the European Patients’ Forum.
