International Men’s Day is an annual international event celebrated on November 19. Inaugurated in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago, the day and its events is celebrated in over 60 countries.
The objectives of celebrating an International Men’s Day include focusing on men’s and boys’ health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models. It is an occasion to highlight discrimination against men and boys and to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care.
