As part of its Sheds for Life initiative, the Irish Men’s Sheds Association is launching the website Malehealth.ie on July 20th 2017.

Aimed at men of all ages and backgrounds – shedders and non-shedders alike – the site, which is based on the hugely successful Spanner in the Works website developed by our counterparts in the Australian Men’s Sheds Association, will be live from July 20th.

MaleHealth.ie aims to set men on the road to better health by providing them with a wide range of health information and resources from over 40 leading health organisations.

MaleHealth.ie offers key health information for men in a practical, relatable form. The website is designed to be user-friendly for men of all ages, and its interface is based on the familiar shape of a typical car, as a direct comparison to the male body.

Users first enter their age category, and can then browse by body part for ailments and conditions that might affect them. Users are then directed to relevant health information from a leading health organisation in the field they have selected. Over 40 such nationwide health organisations are signposted on the site, ranging from the Health Service Executive itself to bodies which deal with specific health topics such as diabetes, joint health and testicular cancer.

The links, resources and information on MaleHealth.ie place a strong emphasis on prevention and keeping fit and healthy in body and mind.
