The MSF Sweden Innovation Unit (SIU) aims to promote innovations that help save lives and alleviate suffering, and to develop a culture of innovation within MSF. Since its initial creation in 2012, the SIU has gone  through a rapid period of development. It has been transformed from a project into a separate unit with activities having become more structured and professional, and the number of innovation initiatives and projects increasing along with the unit size. This report is an evaluation of the SIU from 2014 to 2018 with the aim of assessing if the SIU is delivering on its objectives to maximize the innovation capability of MSF and support to MSF Operational Centers (OCs).
