Some evaluation reports are public and can be downloaded from this website, while others are restricted to MSF users and can only be accessed via Tukul. This limitation is mainly due to the sensitive nature of the operational contexts and the resulting content. However, there are internal discussions about making all evaluation reports publicly searchable. If you are an MSF association member, reports are made available on various associate platforms such as www.insideOCB.com.

In 2013, MSF Sweden contracted a third-party service provider to set up a medical course known as Humanitarian Health Assistance (HHA). HHA is targeted at doctors and nurses recently recruited by MSF. Its objective is to prepare them for their first mission with MSF. The course, accredited with 15 ETCs, is organized by the Swedish Red Cross University College with Karolinska Institutet. This evaluation aims at fostering a better understanding of course outputs and outcomes, in order to support informed decisions to move forward.

In November 2015, MSF-OCB launched a pilot initiative, the Field Opportunity Envelope (FOE), with the objective to give autonomy to field staffs to rapidly and without validation meet the needs of the communities in their intervention area. Each project could request either 100,000 or 200,000 euros, provided that their initiative met a set of criteria. This light review aims to take stock of how it has been received and used by operations and make recommendations for its future development.

Sufficient time has now elapsed to evaluate MSF´s trio of clinics and to make recommendations for their improvement, as well as to identify cross-cutting lessons applicable to future efforts in similar contexts. This is especially important as the clinics represent the first experiences for MSF in the specialized rehabilitation of victims.
