We work closely with our global men's health partners to ensure collaboration, transparency and accountability for every project we fund. We monitor this through report cards which detail what we seek to achieve, key measures and the impact.
Prostate Cancer
"Together with the brightest minds in research, we aim to achieve significant breakthroughs in the hope of beating prostate cancer. 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
“The number of men taking their own lives around the world is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Movember is working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to seek help when they’re struggling.”
Brendan Maher, Global Director, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
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.

About the project

Delivered in a setting where men are, such as a pub or workplace, the specific program objectives of Speakeasy workshops are:

  • Normalise challenges: Educate attendees of the frequency of life’s challenges, to increase knowledge and awareness of what those around the are going through, to change attitudes and their willingness to reach out and share.
  • Build capacity: Arm men with the tools to more effectively support their friends, family and community as well as increase their social connections and confidence and willingness to talk, especially when times are tough.
  • Scale impact: Use the content and positive experience of the pilot events to grow year-on-year attendance, increasing the participation and reach of men in the live events.
