What is Movember?

This November, Holborn are participating in Movember.

Men are dying on average 5 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons.

Movember is a project which aims to address this crisis on a global scale. They fund groundbreaking projects all over the world, engaging men where they are to understand what works best and accelerate change.

By 2030, Movember aims to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%, as currently, men can expect to live on average five years less than women.

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.

Together we can make a difference in men’s health and raise awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
