"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, Programmes
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, Programmes.

About the project

Care to Drive partners with a hospital to transport patients experiencing transport difficulties, to and from their chemotherapy treatments.
This service was extended to accommodate radiotherapy patients from Donegal attending Galway University Hospital and patients attending St. Luke’s travelling to Dublin transport hubs.Volunteers are recruited in the hospital catchment area given by the hospital and after interviews, training, reference checking and garda vetting, volunteers are ready to drive.
Referrals are sent by the hospital to the Care to Drive team.
Volunteers are then allocated drives according to their availability and geographic location.
This free service allows patients can get to and from their hospital treatments, removing huge financial stress, as well as pressure on friends and family members

Tallaght Hospital
Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown 
Midlands Regional Hospital, Tullamore
