Murchana Roychoudhury

Communications Coordinator
Corporate Affairs

What I do at MMV:

My role at MMV includes a range of activities to support the communications team in implementing the organization’s communications strategy. As the Communications Coordinator, I am responsible for the logistical and administrative activities of the team and act as a focal point between external communications providers and the legal, finance and business development teams. I am also involved in conducting desk research to support the development of MMV’s communication materials.

Why I work at MMV:

As a student of global health, I am keen to work on projects that allow the alignment of my interest in communication strategies with opportunities to acquire a deeper understanding of the global health system.

The challenge of protecting vulnerable populations from malaria in the developing world is further complicated by issues such as climate change. In this ever-changing malaria landscape, MMV’s mission is crucial to the global ambitions of eradicating malaria and I am glad to be a part of the team.

I am happy to be part of the communications team spotlighting MMV’s journey to develop the medicines to contribute to malaria eradication.

More about me:

I am in my last year of a Master in Development Studies at The Graduate Institute. My past experiences in organizations such as the United Nations Development Programme and the Alliance for Health Promotion have helped me to develop skills in creating communications materials for internal and external audiences including for events such as the World Health Assembly. Part of the internet generation, I have used social media in professional capacities and am also currently doing a research project on radicalization of youth through digital platforms.
