Men’s health is now officially on the agenda in Hungary.
In October, a dedicated section of the National Society of Health Education dealing with all aspects of men’s health was set up Professor Tamás Simon in the chair. Prof. Simon, who had been very active in helping to bring this about, has set-up a 12-member Advisory Board with experts in the fields concerned.
Prof Dr János Métneki of the Hungarian National Institute for Health Development reports: ‘Perhaps partly as a result of publications and news appearing on our homepage and in the media, an ever-increasing number of events and activities in Hungary have been set up under the "men’s health" banner, including those of a Men's Health Club which also publishes a magazine on lifestyle. In addition, it runs a professional service which, both on the telephone and through personal meetings, offers help and advice to all those that contact them.
‘Connected to the Prostate Day in September, the Urology Clinic of the Budapest University organised an Open Day. On this occasion, articles centered on this and related health problems have been published in several Hungarian journals.’
