Movember 2018 – Men’s Health Awareness Month

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.

That’s why we’re taking action. We’re the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. We’re independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 13 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.

By 2030 we’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%. Help us stop men dying too young. Join the movement.

We believe in taking action.

We’re creating positive change for men’s health by raising awareness and educating men year-round, and through our take-over of the month formerly known as November.

Moustaches In Movember

For 30 days your moustache turns you into a walking, talking billboard for men’s health.

MOVE In Movember. TAKE THE MOVE CHALLENGE

MOVE is a 30-day physical fitness challenge. Champion men’s health this Movember, starting with your own.

We invest strategically in three key focus areas to have an everlasting impact on men’s health.
We work year-round with our global men’s health partners and academic and clinical institutions to ensure our programmes accelerate improvements to some of the biggest health issues faced by men. In particular, we focus on:

Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in the UK.

Testicular Cancer
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 25-49.

Poor Mental Health
On average, 13 men each day take their life by suicide in the UK.

We report on every initiative we fund so you can see the effect your donations are having.
Thanks to the support of Mo Bros, Mo Sistas and donors we’ve funded more than 1,000 projects to improve men’s health. These initiatives are as diverse as they are vital, spanning everything from local health programmes to groundbreaking international collaborative research.

THE WORK WE FUND

From 30 moustaches to 5 million, we couldn’t have done it without you.
From humble beginnings back in 2003 the Movember movement has grown to be a truly global one, inspiring support from over 5 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas.

The Movember Foundation wouldn’t be where it is without the enthusiasm of all of those men and women around the globe. We’re committed to keeping things fresh, keeping the community informed, and always being transparent and accountable in our practices.
