Movember - 2021 - Mens 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. International charities are tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round.    They are addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. 

Moustaches In Movember
For 30 days your moustache turns you into a walking, talking billboard for men’s health.
MOVE is a 30-day physical fitness challenge. Champion men’s health this Movember, starting with your own.

Charities focus on key areas to have an everlasting impact on men’s health.
They work all year-round with 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.

Thanks to the support of one of these charties. Mo Bros, Mo Sistas and donors they have 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. From 30 moustaches to 5 million, they 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. They are committed to keeping things fresh, keeping the community informed, and always being transparent and accountable in our practices.
