November 19 marks International Men’s Day all around the world. The objective of this day is to focus on men’s and boys’ health, improving gender relations, and promoting gender equality. The day celebrates the achievements and contributions of men and boys to the nation, society, community, family, marriage, and childcare. The ultimate aim of the day is to promote basic humanitarian values.
International Men’s Day on November 19 was founded in 1999 by Dr Jerome Teelucksingh a history lecturer at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad Tobago. Jerome Teelucksingh, who revived the event, chose November 19 to honor his father’s birthday and also to celebrate how on that date in 1989 Trinidad and Tobago’s soccer team.
This year, the theme for International Men’s Day is “Better health for men and boys” with the aim to make practical improvements to the health and wellbeing of the male population.
