Men’s health is in trouble…

Men’s health is in trouble

All around the world, fathers, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young, before their time and for no good reason.

About the Movember Foundation

The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health. We raise funds that deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support programmes to enable men to live happier, healthier
and longer lives.

Awareness and fundraising activities are run year-round by the Foundation, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognised for its fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and getting men to take action for their health.

Since 2003, we’ve created a men’s health movement of over 5 million supporters across the world. Through the moustaches grown and the conversations generated, we’ve helped fund 1,200 innovative men’s health projects across more than 20 countries focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

Your money

We’re funding more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
With money raised, we’re funding game-changing programmes while positively challenging the way in which men’s health issues are researched and addressed.
By 2030, we’ve committed to :
Reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%
Halve the number of deaths from prostate and testicular cancer
Reduce the number of men taking their own lives by 25%
