We fund health programs  through the Movember Foundation and our men’s health partners.

Prostate and Testicular Cancer:
  • We invest in research and health services that contribute to less men dying from prostate and testicular cancer and to improve the quality of life for those that live with the disease, both physically and mentally.
Mental Health and Suicide Prevention:
  • Mental health is an integral part of health. We invest in programs that help men and boys stay mentally healthy. In the US, we invest in health services that will focus on community-level prevention programs to improve mental health.
