Men's Health World Congress 2020 

July 9-11, 2020

Borneo Convention Centre Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia

Welcome Message

 - From the Organising Chair - 

 

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you to the Men’s Health World Congress 2020 at the beautiful city of Kuching, Sarawak!

This Congress is jointly organised by the Malaysian Society of Andrology and the Study of Ageing Males (MSASAM) and the Malaysian Clearinghouse for Men’s Health. With the endorsement of International Society for Men’s Health, we will bring the Conference to Malaysia with the intention of making men’s health accessible to researchers, educators and practitioners (allied healthcare professionals, nurses, family doctors, specialists) in the Asia Pacific Region.

‘United for Men’s Health’ is the theme for MHWC 2020 as we believe in a comprehensive and holistic approach to promoting men’s health, and that this can only be done successfully through inter-sectorial and inter-disciplinary collaborations. Therefore, this Congress will not only cover epidemiology, policies, clinical advances in men’s health, it will also explore how gender identity, changing social and cultural norms shape men’s behaviours and their health. Exciting topics include: use of ICT to improve men’s health, improving men’s health in key populations, updates in andrology, social determinants in men’s health, delivering men’s health services, and the latest WHO European Men’s Health Policy.

At the MHWC 2020, you will be able to interact with top international and regional experts and researchers in men's health and related disciplines through plenaries, symposia, and workshops. We would also like to welcome you to submit abstracts to present your research work (oral and poster) and conduct workshops related to men’s health. It is our goal to use MHWC 2020 as a platform to unite all men’s health stakeholders to discuss, debate, brainstorm, seek solutions and set directions for the future of men’s health.

This Congress has received generous support from the State of Sarawak, and together, we assure you of a fruitful and enjoyable experience. We look forward to welcoming you to Kuching in 2020!
