Applying Global Best Practice in charity, setting the benchmark within South Africa, facing 3rd World Country challenges. The Men’s Foundation recognises the opportunity of working with global knowledge and insights, adapted to our unique landscape and challenges applied through local NGO’s, to provide fixed term sustainable programmes surrounding prostate and testicular cancer, mental health issues and the impact of physical inactivity and facing the South African male population.
Men’s Health in South Africa requires prioritization. By raising awareness and funds, and in turn, programme investment through official beneficiaries, NGO’s and collaborating with government, The Men’s Foundation aims to positively influence the average life expectancy of South African men.
While there’s a lot of progress and achievement since the advent of democracy in providing basic Health services, the Health sector, clearly defined between the previously historically disadvantaged, government has made it clear that the focus on woman and children remains a key objective, leaving alo to be desired for South African Men, who are left to rely on the private and NGO sector.
