"We work closely with our global men's health partners to ensure collaboration, transparency and accountability for every project we fund. We monitor this through report cards which detail what we seek to achieve, key measures and the impact." - Owen Sharp, CEO
Prostate Cancer
"Together with the brightest minds in research, we aim to achieve significant breakthroughs in the hope of beating prostate cancer. Our disruptive funding approach identifies revolutionary ways to accelerate health outcomes by creating strong, global collaborative teams." Dr. Colleen Nelson, Global Scientific Chair.
Men's Health
"One Mo can help change the face of men’s health through the powerful conversations created globally during Movember. Men have the chance to confidently discuss men’s health with people around them, resulting in men taking action early, helping change and save lives." Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programmes
Mental health and suicide prevention
“The number of men taking their own lives around the world is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Movember is working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to seek help when they’re struggling.”
Brendan Maher, Global Director, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
Testicular Cancer
“Despite being the 2nd most common cancer in young men, testicular cancer is often a forgotten cancer due to early detection and treatment. Our projects look at underinvested areas such as improving access to healthcare services and treatment options for relapse” Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programmes.

About the project

  • The Nutters Club was a weekly Talk Back radio show hosted by popular personality Mike King. Supported by mental health professionals and consumers alike -  it acts as a forum for men to openly share stories about their mental health.
  • The Nutters Club was a phone-in programme with a guest talking about mental health experiences and members of the public phoning in with comments and questions. Each broadcast included someone with clinical psychological training who acted as an active participant in providing feedback and advice.
  • The Nutters Club utilised Facebook as a key platform to engage listeners and mental health professionals in forum discussion.
  • Involved high profile personalities from the Maori and Pacific community in order to engage with a wider audience.
