Another great Rotary health initiative The Men's Health Educational Rural Van (MHERV) was developed by the Community Nursing Team at Mudgee Health Service. MHERV is a mobile, men's health check up and information service. The modified van travels to men's workplaces and community sites within a 50km radius of Mudgee NSW. This flexible service has improved men's access to health information and appropriate support services.
The health check includes a review of blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol levels. A comprehensive discussion about men's health issues follows this review. Health education is provided on an extensive number of men’s health topics. Local observations identified that men were often reluctant to access health facilities. MHERV addresses this barrier by offering a versatile, flexible, men’s health specific, and health service. MHERV has created substantial local interest, which in turn has increased the profile of men's health.
