Every year, the world celebrates Movember in the month of November to raise awareness about men’s health. The ‘Mo’ in Movember is from ‘moustache’, which founders Travis Garone and Luke Slattery realised wasn’t seen as much then and since then has gone on to become the identity of the movement. It has been conducted by the Movember Foundation since 2003 in Australia and has since seen a lot of people come together at the global level to join the cause. The movement primarily raises awareness about prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s mental health and suicide prevention.
