Our disruptive funding approach identifies revolutionary ways to accelerate health outcomes by creating strong, global collaborative teams." Dr. Colleen Nelson, Global Scientific Chair.
Men's Health
"One Mo can help change the face of men’s health through the powerful conversations created globally during Movember. Men have the chance to confidently discuss men’s health with people around them, resulting in men taking action early, helping change and save lives." Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programs
Mental health and suicide prevention
“We’re alarmed by the increasing number of men who take their own lives around the world. We are working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to reach out to others for support when they’re struggling.” 
Craig Martin, Global Director - Mental Health & Suicide Prevention programs
Testicular Cancer
“Despite being the 2nd most common cancer in young men, testicular cancer is often a forgotten cancer due to early detection and treatment. Our projects look at underinvested areas such as improving access to healthcare services and treatment options for relapse” Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programs.

What we seek to achieve

TrueNTH Testicular Cancer is a website, optimised for mobile devices, that aims to bring resources to men who are facing a diagnosis and early treatment for testicular cancer. Using the principles of user centred design, we have created a resource that in the fist instance delivers curated, relevant and timely information to men to help them navigate the early stages of treatment.

About the project

This project looks to address a currently unmet need – men currently do not have access to information that they understand, that is written in a language that resonates with them.   If delivered correctly, we see a world where no man goes through testicular cancer without a community to reach out to, without the knowledge they need and without knowing that no matter how hard it is while they’re going through it, they’ve got the chance to be even better than they were before.

In order to achieve our vision of rapidly scaling this product and significantly impacting the lives of men, we must test, iterate and improve the current and planned features.  We must also design new and engaging content to inspire men to continue to return to the site and engage with the content and feature set of the product.  We also must continue to innovate around new features that will make the journey of men through diagnosis and early treatment more tolerable.

Future features of the site will be the functionality to connect with a survivor who has lived through the same experience to facilitate peer support and a capacity to seek advice from experts in the field on a range of questions relating to the Testicular Cancer Journey.

Early feedback on the initial release has been overwhelmingly positive, however we must continue to evolve the product and keep the content fresh, relevant and interesting.
