[RBM leadership interview conducted by Boriana Savova, Communications Officer, Roll Back Malaria Partnership Secretariat, October 2009] Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen.jpg Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen Q: What motivated you to pursue the path of humanitarian entrepreneurship? Why did you choose to focus on malaria, among other diseases? Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: I started out as an entrepreneur in Africa, where at the age of 19 I opened my first company in Lagos. Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: It is positive feedback and recognition that we have found a plausible way for a company to prosper by helping save people's lives and improving their health. Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: As individual organizations we are often like race cars driving at top speed towards our individual objectives. RBM's role is to ensure that we all drive in the same direction. Q: Can you point to an example of a successful partnership effort in which you have participated? Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: I will point to two recent examples, both generating far-reaching benefits. Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: The fact that large parts of the private sector delegation at RBM are my competitors keeps me on my toes (laughs). Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: A razor-sharp focus on the 2010 targets will lead many countries to universal coverage of bed nets for all people at risk, marking one of the major public health achievements of our time. Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: In malaria prevention the partnership went to scale with a "one size fits all" approach. Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: It is refreshing that some companies have started seeing a bottom line beyond the making of money. Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen: Hard work and focus but also an ability to anticipate change and prepare for it through analysis and strategy. Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen
