THE Stanger Hospital launched a men’s forum recently which through dialogue among the members would assist its male staff to deal with social, economic and political issues that affect them personally.

“The launch of the forum coincided with celebrating men and honouring them for the support that they give to their fellow female colleagues.

“The men’s forum was formed to improve the health, relationships and wellbeing of men in the institution. Stanger Hospital events committee took the initiative to go this far because we all know that men are the head of a family, which means men contribute a lot in building a healthy family,” said Stanger Hospital public relations officer Pumla Mba.

Motivational speaker Pastor Ngema was part of the proceedings to offer words of encouragement and guidance to the men.

“Being strong is actually having the ability to seek help for the sake of our own lives and people who love and depend on us,” he said.

He encouraged all men to become responsible leaders of their families and to play a positive role in the communities and that they should strive for being the best in their places of work as well.

KZN Department of Health men’s forum chairperson Mlungisi Ndlovu spoke about the importance of having one partner which, he said is a sign of respecting one’s own family.

He discouraged men from engaging in cross-generational relationships, saying that this destroys families and further exacerbates the spread of HIV and AIDS.
