This event is organised by the Australasian Men's Health Forum. The forum will provide delegates with the opportunity to participate in strengthening the advancement of male health in the Australasian region and beyond through effective strategic planning and knowledge management.

The National Men's Health Gathering 2011 consists of:

The 6th national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Male health convention:

The convention represents an exciting time for Indigenous men as it provides an opportunity to discuss men's issues and to evaluate the effects of the past, the disadvantage of men's health at present, and the measures necessary to promote and ensure a healthier future. An important area of the convention is to assist Aboriginal men understand their responsibility to improve men's health and the value of their roles such as fathers, brothers, leaders, elders, husbands, uncles, and grandfathers.

The 9th national men's health conference:
Tuesday 20 to Thursday 22 September
The conference will provide a range of opportunities for participants to share the successes and challenges in their current work, to mix and share experiences with others with a common interest in male health and wellbeing and to reflect on current achievements and discuss future ones with colleagues from Australia and abroad. The conference will invigorate delegates through stimulating papers, issue debates and interactive workshop sessions and provide many exciting and challenging learning experiences. The agenda will be broad reaching and the networking reception will create vital networking time for all.

The 5th national men and family relationships forum:
Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 September
The forum will explore the constantly changing context of men and their family relationships in Australia. It will recognise the significant achievements; identify examples of positive, strengths-based approaches to working with men, young men and children.
