Innovating on a global scale

We cannot achieve our goals without building a movement with partners at all levels of government, research and civil society. This has to happen globally, with results shared across borders to extend our reach. We're creating innovative solutions, using new ideas and new technology to solve long-standing problems.

Our Global Action Plan

Our Global Action Plan (GAP) connects clinicians and researchers from around the world to accelerate health outcomes for men living with prostate and testicular cancer.

Ensuring funding goes where it's needed most

In addition to global initiatives, we fund a diverse range of country-specific and local programs, always ensuring that knowledge gained is shared onwards.

We report on all the initiatives we fund to hold ourselves accountable and to ensure that we're always assessing the success of those initiatives, learning, and improving.

It is Movember Foundation policy that funding awards do not allow or support institutional overhead so we can maximize the level of funding applied to research, health services interventions and their evaluation.

Translating knowledge into action

We utilize research findings to accelerate new ideas into practice, share information and encourage other organizations to do the same.

This process of knowledge translation aims to get the right information to the right people, at the right time, and in the most effective way. This ensures that the best available evidence informs policies, programs and practice, and improves health outcomes for men around the world.
