November is all about raising money and awareness for men’s health and the iconic annual event, Movember, is back in 2022!

Men’s health is in crisis.

Globally, men die on average 4.5 years earlier than women, and for reasons that are largely preventable.

As the leading charity tackling men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer on a global scale, Movember is making change happen. In our mission to stop men dying too young, Movember funds groundbreaking health projects – 1,250 and counting – uniting experts from all over the world to accelerate research, progress and change.

Year-round, we’re hard at work raising funds and awareness, culminating in our month-long annual moustache-growing event in the month formerly known as November. The month of Movember is globally recognised for its fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and the unique ways it prompts men to take action for their health. Since 2003, more than 6 million people across 21 countries have joined our global men’s health movement, helping men across the world live happier, healthier, longer lives.

Together, we have the power to change the world A growing number of men (around 10.8 million globally) are facing life with a prostate cancer diagnosis. Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men. And across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 69% of all suicides. Movember is uniquely placed to address this crisis on a global scale.

We fund ground-breaking projects all over the world, uniting global experts to collaborate on projects that will fundamentally change the way men in need are treated and supported. Helping them live happier, healthier lives. To ensure our impact is significant, far-reaching, and long-lasting, we prioritise funding for the three biggest health issues facing men today: mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer.

Thanks to the hairy efforts of our Movember community, we’ve been able to fund more than 1,250 men’s health projects worldwide. Delivering innovative, breakthrough research and support programmes to millions of people around the globe.
