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.

SSP was formed in the aftermath of a high profile depot crisis in South Africa in 2012/3, with six organisations, already dealing with drug stock outs joining forces to tackle the issue. The different organisations brought different skills to the table. Largely focused on anti-retrovirals (ARVs) and TB medication, from the beginning the SSP has tasked itself to hold government accountable, to perform a watchdog role and to present the patient view on stock outs.

With the deterioration of the political context in Burundi since April 2015 more than 140,000 refugees have arrived in Tanzania. The refugees are hosted in three camps in Kigoma region, together with 83,000 Congolese refugees living in Nyarugusu camp for almost 20 years. The initial influx of Burundi refugees coincided with a cholera outbreak in Kigoma region, which triggered an immediate MSF emergency response in May 2015. This rapidly shifted with the movement of refugees from the lake shore of Tanganyika to the Nyarugusu camp.

Integration of HIV/TB services is one of the priorities for the MSF movement since 2010 and in particular for OCBA that started hand over of the so-called vertical programs in the same year. This process has finished for the total of 16 vertical HIV programs of MSF-OCBA started since 2005. Integration aims to provide access to HIV/TB care to all populations in need in locations where MSF has implemented regular projects, regardless of the HIV prevalence in places such as CAR (started in 2008), South Sudan (2011) and Niger (2014).

In 2008, the global economic crisis had raised fears of a serious decline in the fundraising resources of the Movement. As a consequence, mechanisms to strengthen solidarity between sections and operational centres (OCs) were set up and an assessment of fundraising potential was launched to understand trends and make income projections. The Fundraising Assessment of South Korea highlighted the strong potential for fundraising in a young and receptive society anxious to show to the world its shift from being a receiving country to becoming a donor one.

Bikenge project was opened in Jan 2015, and medical activities starting on Mar 2015. Six months later, in October 2015, the decision was made to close the project. This was followed by a feeling of frustration, the impression that invested resources were wasted and that this closure could negatively impact on the population and MSF perception.This evaluation looks at the process of decision making for starting the project with the goal to identify the lessons to be used by operations in order to avoid similar situations in the future.

Suite au séisme du 12 janvier 2010 en Haïti, MSF-OCG intervient en urgence dans la zone touchée et offre des soins aux blessés. Alors qu’une grande partie des structures de santé de la zone affectée par le séisme sont endommagées ou détruites, MSF-OCG décide de s’impliquer rapidement dans une intervention à moyen terme, soit la mise en place d’un hôpital en container de 120 lits sur la commune de Léogâne (épicentre du tremblement de terre où 80% des bâtiments ont été détruit).

This evaluation was conducted by Federica Alberti, Annie Desilets and Yves Sonnay on behalf of the MSF Vienna Evaluation Unit.
