In this paper, we introduce a new class of harmonic functions, which is called harmonic mpreinvex functions for a fixed m. Some Hermite-Hadamard inequality for harmonic m-preinvex functions are derived. Several special cases are discussed as applications of the main results. The ideas and techniques of this paper may be starting point for further research.
