Movember: Having an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.

Creating a better world for men.

The Movember Foundation is a global men’s health charity. The foundation raises funds that deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support programs that allow men to live happier, healthier, and longer lives. Millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 projects, focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity.

Our vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.

Around the world, the statistics about men’s health tell us that more action is needed to tackle the specific issues that affect men’s health. There is an urgent need to make men’s health a priority issue, alongside the health and well-being of the women and children in our communities.

We want to increase awareness and find breakthrough solutions that improve the quality of life and the chances of survival for men living with these cancers.

Gender-based inequality in health has received little national, regional, or global acknowledgment or attention from health policy-makers or health-care providers. This is exactly why the Movember foundation focuses on men’s health. This is why mo bros and mo sistas from across the globe become a united voice every Movember, bringing vital funding and attention to the hidden men’s health crisis.

We want men to live happier, healthier, longer lives and are committed to achieving this through the programs we fund and awareness we raise year-round. We encourage all men to take action when it comes to their health.

The annual Movember campaign, held in November, is the primary fund-raising campaign for the organization. During the month of ‘Movember’, we ask mo bros to grow a moustache and effectively become walking, talking billboards for men’s health, sparking both private and public conversations. Mo sistas also participate in raising funds during Movember. They support the mo bros in their lives, whether it’s for their father, brother, son, or partner, mo sistas are champions of men’s health.
