The funds raised by the Movember community in the UK support the number one and two male specific cancers - prostate and testicular cancer. The funds raised are directed to programmes run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners,The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research. Together, these channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programmes in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.
Throughout the year, we constantly update our Programmes We Fund section under About Movember
, so please come back to the site so we can continue to show you the difference your funds are making. If you’ve got time, take a look now at the work the Movember community is currently supporting.
MOVEMBER’S GLOBAL ACTION PLAN – DIRECTLY FUNDED BY MOVEMBER
Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the state of men’s health. To this end Movember has established the Movember Global Action Plan (GAP), which aims to accelerate prostate cancer outcomes through global research collaboration. Working with our prostate cancer partners in each country over the last few years, we identified an opportunity to accelerate research outcomes that benefit men by providing researchers around the world the ability to work together to address critical research challenges. Given our presence internationally, Movember is uniquely placed to address this challenge by facilitating and funding a new and bold approach to prostate cancer research collaboration that fast tracks outcomes.
