A year ago, in November 2016, we announced the formation of the Men and Boys Coalition at a launch event in the Houses of Parliament. A year on, what difference has it made?
The Coalition has written to the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation in support of the arguments and views of a range of organisations — including The British Medical Association and The Terrence Higgins Trust — who support extending HPV vaccination to adolescent boys in England.
Members of the Men and Boys Coalition have joined leading advocates for male victims of sexual and domestic violence in urging the Government to introduce a parallel strategy and separate classification/categorisation for male victims of intimate and partner violence.
Coalition calls on the Equalities and Human Rights Commission to publicly declare its position on a decision to continue to discriminate against boys by not offering them the same protection against the HPV virus, as is currently offered to girls.
Mental health campaigner and MBC member Jonny Benjamin MBE is helping to conduct a research study investigating the role of members of the public in preventing suicides in public places.
Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, refuses multiple requests by the Coaltion to follow her annual report on women’s health with an equivalent report on the health of men.
The charity Families Need Fathers and MBC member FNF Both Parents Matter Cymru have launched a new manifesto calling for key changes to family law.
Men and Boys Coalition member combines the launch of his new EP with a celebration of the powerful achievements of young men.
Men and Boys Coalition calls for a second time on the Chief Medical Officer to focus her Annual Report on men’s health, in order to match her previous report focusing on the health of women.
The Men and Boys Coalition has contributed to a Parliamentary inquiry into whether fathers are being fairly treated in the workplace and urged the inquiry to call members of the Coalition as expert witnesses.
