The Work We Fund

Funded projects
Men's Health Partners
"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

  • This project involves the development and implementation of an online survey researching the health and wellbeing of men in five countries. This survey aims to address knowledge gaps by increasing our understanding of the role of masculinity and its association with health behaviours and risk and protective factors related to men's health and wellbeing. Based on the survey results and relevant existing sources, a global report will be developed on the state of men's health and wellbeing and also country-specific reports to provide local perspectives.
  • The knowledge gained will provide valuable insights into the issues facing men, and inform new policy and practice in order to better meet the needs of men and boys in our communities.
  • This project was originally conceived and guided by an advisory committee which included international researchers with expertise in mental health and men's health.
  • This project is now completed and the Executive Summary of the final research report is available here.
