Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health.
Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention – they’re taking them all on.
Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.
The UNC Men’s Health Program aims to study and treat numerous health issues that impact men. The differences in health behaviors, preventative screening and medical treatment between men and women have contributed to a widespread, silent health crisis among men. This comprehensive program brings together teams of physicians, scientists, public health leaders and specialists who are dedicated to addressing the health and well-being of men through coordinated clinical care, scientific research, and community outreach.
Across the world, men die an average six years younger than women, and for largely preventable reasons. This means that it doesn’t have to be that way: we can all take action to live healthier, happier and longer lives.
