Helps men lead happier, healthier and longer lives.
Do you see more mustaches and beards than normal on the street? You are probably before a participant in a solidarity event known as a movementMovembers.
Men are leftgrow mustache over 30 days to create awareness for the health problems that affect the mens and to get fundraising to fund vital projects for men's health.
This movement also aims to raise awareness for men about the importance of getting regular medical check-ups and a healthier diet and lifestyle.
Men's health is in crisis.
On average, men die 6 years earlier than women.
In addition, mental health problems affect men more than women (three-quarters of suicides are in men) and the prostate cancer it is the second most common cancer in men.
This gender inequality in health issues has received little recognition or attention within health policies, which is why the Movember Foundation focuses on men's health.
What exactly is Movember?
The Movember Foundation is a charity organization that promotes that men live happier, healthier, for longer.
Since 2003, millions of people have joined this movement to promote men's health.
Each year the amount of money they raise with which they finance more than 1,000 programs focused on the prostate cancer, he Testicular cancer, the mental health problems and the physical inactivity.
The Foundation seeks out the world's leading experts in these areas of men's health to collaborate in finding solutions that will change the way men are treated and supported.
Let your mustache grow throughout the month of November.
Movember has become one of the largest annual campaigns to raise awareness of men's health issues.
To participate in Movember you must:
• Grow a mustache during the 30 days of November. The mustache must be clearly defined, it cannot be attached to the sideburns, and there is no need to grow a beard, only a mustache.
• Hang the photos of how the mustache is growing on the platform that the Foundation has for it. People who want to collaborate with the Foundation can donate money by clicking on the photos.
• And aside from the fundraising issue, simply growing a mustache during the month of November also tends to spark more conversations about men's health. People ask why you grew a mustache and this encourages that at least the importance of health in men is taken into account more.
