Dozens of men’s health projects, thousands of moustaches, men’s health firmly on the agenda: a decade of Movember.
2003, over a beer in Melbourne, Travis Garone and Luke Slattery decide to bring back the moustache. After years of expansion, they partner with The Prostate Cancer Charity in the UK in 2007 to begin a decade of awareness.
Movember’s mission is clear: men are dying too young and something needs to be done about it. Men should be encouraged to recognise the signs and symptoms of illness and to act on them by talking to someone, including a doctor.
