"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, Programs
Mental health and suicide prevention
“We’re alarmed by the increasing number of men who take their own lives around the world. We are working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to reach out to others for support when they’re struggling.” 
Craig Martin, Global Director - Mental Health & Suicide Prevention programs
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, Programs.

About the project

The Society’s Daffodil Centres are located in 10 hospitals around the country. They are open to all, no referral or appointment is necessary and provide free cancer information, support and advice to anyone with questions or concerns about cancer. Those who visit our Daffodil Centres can ask questions and talk through issues and concerns with a specialist cancer information nurse and specially trained volunteers. Together they take the time to listen in confidence and provide information, advice and support tailored to the individual’s needs.
Daffodil Centres located in 10 hospitals nationwide. An additional 4 centres to be developed in 2014. Each Daffodil Centre operates a men's health/cancer awareness stand.

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.
