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

In late 2021 Movember released a funding opportunity to provide grants to community and workplace programs to strengthen the impact of prevention and early intervention models that are already operating in a real-world environment, and enable them to scale to additional audiences, populations, settings and / or geographies. The goal is to gain a better understanding of what it takes for a program to be ready to scale, and to scale successfully.

What we are doing/have done: 16 project teams (Australia x 6, UK x 8 and Canada x 2) have been selected to scale their projects over an 18 – 30 month period. Movember has contracted a third-party evaluation team (CEI) who will work with project teams to evaluate project outcomes, impact, and also focus on developing an understanding of what it takes to scale successfully. Teams will remain engaged within the Scaling What Works Knowledge Community to build global networks and share learnings and best practices.
