Olaug Bergseth

Associate Director, External Relations

What I do at MMV:

As part of MMV’s External Relations team, I manage relationships with existing and potential donors. I work to build and develop strategic relations, regularly communicating with donors and ensuring that commitments are met in a timely manner. An important part of the job is also facilitating relations between donors and internal stakeholders at MMV. 

Why I work at MMV:

Achieving a malaria-free world is an important step towards delivering the SDGs. Discovery, development and delivery of new tools for malaria prevention and treatment are critical if we are to eradicate malaria in the foreseeable future. MMV’s track record and passion for treating underserved populations and saving lives together with MMV’s upbeat energy is what motivated me to join the organization.

More about me: 

Over the years I have worked closely with multi-stakeholder teams to develop numerous long-term strategic partnerships with major private and public sector companies and organizations. These partnerships have addressed a wide range of areas, including global health priorities with a focus on creating shared value for all stakeholders. Prior to joining MMV, I worked for the Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership (GARDP), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) as well as in various positions in Norway including with the government focusing on education and female entrepreneurs. I have a Master in Development Geography from the University in Bergen, Norway.
