"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

A network of global Local Data Centres and their Participating Sites provide de-identified patient clinical data (including blood samples and patient reported outcome measures to the Global Data Coordination Centre. Clinical data, Blood samples (DNA, serum, circulating tumor DNA) and patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) are collected at baseline and across the first 3 years of the project.

Physician questionnaires will also be completed to enable a better understanding of factors that influence clinical decision making. This data (de identified) will be systematically collected in each country, and provided to the global data co ordination centre for analysis and reporting to all participating sites. The resources created through the project will also enable additional research to be undertaken.

We also plan to support clinical quality and survivorship sub studies leveraging the Ironman database to improve outcomes for men
