What is Movember?

Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health. Men grow and women support a Mo (moustache or mustache) for 30 days becoming walking, talking billboards. Movember supports world-class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer.

 

 

Men who support this month long charity event, are called Mo Bros. Mo Bros planning to grow a mustache, start the month clean-shaven, then grow and groom their Mo, for the rest of the month, raising money along the way. Women who support this cause are called Mo Sistas. Mo Sistas champion the Mo by registering and supporting the men in their life, spreading the important message of men’s health, leading a team and organizing events.

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about.

Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.

 

That’s why we’re taking action.

We’re the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. We’re independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 13 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.

 

By 2030 we’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

Help us stop men dying too young. Join the movement.
