Men’s Health Week: Men’s Health and Covid-19

Men's Health and Covid

The Covid-19 pandemic is having a major impact on men. While there is a broadly similar incidence and prevalence rate to women, men are faster at developing serious illness; recover slower from the virus; and, have a higher death rate. There is also a broad range of mental health and social impacts upon men and the wider community which are a cause for concern.

A webinar shining a light on the effect of Covid-19 on men was hosted by Noel Richardson, Director, National Centre of Men’s Health in Ireland. In the webinar, he interviews Dr Alan White, Emeritus Professor of Men’s Health at Leeds Beckett University.

The webinar was recorded and can be viewed below.
