Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three-quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year.
That’s one every minute.
The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale. What does their future look like? Half as many men dying from prostate and testicular cancer. Half as many men suffering serious side effects as a result of their treatment. A quarter fewer men dying from suicide.
Movember fund ground-breaking programs all over the world, engaging with men where they are, to understand what works best, to help make change happen sooner. Their goals are big, but the impact of doing nothing is bigger.
