The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. For 30 days your moustache turns you into a walking, talking billboard for men’s health. The moustache is your hairy ribbon.
Millions of people have joined the men’s health movement, raising R5.7 billion for programmes focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. We’re creating positive change for men’s health by raising awareness and educating men year-round, and through our take-over of the month formerly known as November.
We invest strategically in four key focus areas to have an everlasting impact on men’s health. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in South African men. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men aged 15 – 39. Our mental health funding strategy, globally, a man dies every minute from suicide. The fourth leading risk factor for global mortality.
