"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

  • People are steered to the www.getthetools.org.nz website where they can view a superb array of men’s health information for individuals, families and workplaces plus real prostate cancer survivorship stories.
  • From there, prostate cancer-specific help is available. Men can access trained prostate cancer survivors for peer support, talk with an oncology nurse and find detailed information regarding the treatment options available.
  • Trained Get The Tools (GTT) facilitators and PC Ambassadors can be invited to present to groups.
  • Prostate cancer patients will be able to engage in exercise programs.

As the program detailed in this report card supports men with prostate cancer as well as boys and men with testicular cancer, this report card is shown in both the prostate cancer and testicular cancer categories.​
