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.
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, Programmes
Mental health and suicide prevention
“The number of men taking their own lives around the world is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Movember is working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to seek help when they’re struggling.”
Brendan Maher, Global Director, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
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, Programmes.

About the project

Focusing on supporting farmers and their families, Farmstrong’s vision is happy and healthy rural communities. The goal to achieve this is to improve the physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing of rural men (and their families) who work in the agricultural sector.

This is achieved by helping farmers put caring for their mental health and wellbeing into their farming and agri business plans alongside their plans for looking after land, stock and machinery.

To achieve this goal the key objectives are to make measurable improvements in rural men’s:

  • Motivation to invest in emotional and psychological wellbeing
  • Knowledge, skills and confidence in improving their own and others’ wellbeing
  • Uptake of practical tools, behaviours and habits that help improve wellbeing
  • Connectedness and support
