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

The Prostate Cancer Outcomes - Registry Australia and New Zealand (PCOR-ANZ) provides a population based understanding of clinical and patient reported health outcome data for men diagnosed with prostate cancer across Australia and New Zealand. The objective of the registry is to routinely capture data for 80% of newly diagnosed prostate cancer cases annually.
Clinicians and hospitals contributing data to PCOR-ANZ receive 6 monthly benchmark reports on their patients’ health outcomes as compared to other clinicians and hospitals in Australia and New Zealand. Over time, this will support improvement in clinical practice and patient outcomes.
PCOR-ANZ produces a publicly available Annual Report of patient reported outcomes linked to treatment and is overseen by four Governance Committees consisting of clinicians, administrators, epidemiologists, researchers and prostate cancer survivors. An infrastructure upgrade project is currently underway to enhance and support the growing needs of PCOR-ANZ longer term and better enable us to respond more rapidly to the changing landscape of prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment.
