MOVEMBER concentrates on three key themes in men’s health: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
Most men do not give their health a high priority – at most when they are old or when there is a serious problem. The result? Men’s health is in crisis. On average, men die 3 years earlier than women for reasons which are largely preventable. Men deserve better in terms of their health, but this won’t happen unless we change something. We must stop men dying too young.
The MOVEMBER Foundation is leading a change in the way men look at their health and get support. MOVEMBER helps men think about their health, talk openly about problems and get better treatment when life becomes difficult. The foundation works with the very best researchers all over the world, increasing collaboration and reducing duplication.
