The Work We Fund

Funded projects
Men's Health Partners
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, Programmes
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, Programmes.

About the project

Currently in its eighth year, the Making Connections initiative focuses on specific communities across the U.S. Thirteen projects started developing and implementing actionable, community-level prevention plans to improve mental health and wellbeing, with particular emphasis on improving outcomes within high-need populations, including boys and men of color, military members, veterans, and their families.  After an initial 5 year investment, Movember is supporting 4 of the projects sites to continue implementing and delivering on their project plans.
Through innovation, collaboration and sharing of lessons learned along the way, the Making Connections initiative aims to demonstrate and inform policymakers, funders, practitioners, and communities of the value of community-level approaches in support of improving mental health outcomes.
