Day 2 of Movember 2011:
Un des nombreux Movemberiens qui se mobilise en ce mois de novembre, prêt a marginaliser son rasoir au profit de sa noble moustache!
As expected, not much happening on the lip here… :) so here’s a little background on Movember’s Goals »>
Campaign strategic goal
We will get men to grow moustaches by creating an innovative, fun and engaging annual Movember campaign that raises funds and awareness globally.
Strategic goals from the funds raised:
We will fund survivorship initiatives that provide information and support for men and their families affected by prostate and other male cancers that helps them make informed decisions and improves their quality of life.
Awareness and education
Through our annual campaign and funded programs we will significantly increase the understanding of the health risk that men face and encourage men to act on that knowledge.
Prostate cancer research
We will fund catalytic research and clinical trials infrastructure that leads to significantly improved diagnostic and prognostic tests and treatments to reduce the burden of prostate cancer.
Influencing change in men’s health
We will fund research that helps to inform health policy and knowledge translation that accelerates improved health outcomes for men.
