Movember in Thailand
Currently in Thailand there don’t appear to be any charities which specifically focus on men’s health issues.
However, there are a number of charities which do work on men’s health issues as part of their programs. For example, The National Cancer Institute (NCI) in regards to prostate cancer and Thai Family Link Foundation in regards to depression.
In particular, there is a great need for advocacy and specific men’s health awareness programs to promote men's health, as men are much less likely than women to recognise health symptoms and go and seek treatment.
Over the next few months, Givingbackassoc representatives will have discussions with these charities to see if they are willing to establish separate men’s health programs which the Movemeber movement can help to support through the annual fund raising events/programs in November each year.
If you have any questions, advice or are willing to help in any way with establishing the Movember movement in Thailand please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you are interested...take action. We will see if we can bring the parties to together for this worthwhile men’s health initiative.

WELCOME TO MOVEMBER
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. With their “Mo’s” men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. As an independent global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
HOW IT WORKS
Movember challenges men to grow a moustache for the 30-days of November, thereby changing their appearance and the face of men’s health. In October Mo Bros sign up at Movember.com, and on the 1st of Movember with a clean-shaven face start their Mo growing journey.
Then for the entire month, these selfless and generous men known as Mo Bros, effectively become walking, talking billboards for 30 days. Through their growing efforts they raise awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, by prompting conversations wherever they go.
Another crucial part of being a Mo Bro is to raise funds for men’s health. Men donate their face, and much like taking part in a run or a walk for charity, ask their family and friends to sponsor their efforts.
THE MOVEMBER EFFECT
Movember supports world class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges. These programs, directed by the Movember Foundation, are focused on awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, staying mentally healthy, living with and beyond mental illness and research to achieve our vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
MOVEMBER _ A GLOBAL MOVEMENT
Since its humble beginnings in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate across 21 countries worldwide.
