St. Kitts and Nevis will join the rest of the world in celebration of International Men’s Day (IMD), under the theme “Better health for men and boys.” 


Men’s Day is an annual international event celebrated on the 19th of November.


It is an occasion to celebrate boys and men’s achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to the nation, society, community, family, marriage and childcare.


The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian values. 


The day also celebrates worldwide, the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities as well as highlight positive role models and raise awareness of men’s well-being.  


Inaugurated in 1992 on February 7th by Thomas Oaster, the project of International Men’s Day was conceived one year earlier on February 8th 1991.


The project was re-initialized in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago.
