Evaluation reports are either openly accessible via pdf download, or accessible via MSF's internal Sharepoint, which is mainly due to the sensitive nature of the operational contexts and resulting content. However, there are ongoing 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.

Following the earthquake in 2010 and the emergency response that ensued, MSF-OCG took the decision to invest in a hospital in the Leogane area that was for several years the biggest hospital managed by MSF-OCG. Given that for the last three years this was the only MSF-OCG project in the country, that the capital is located only two hours from the hospital and that there is a strategic ambition within MSF-OCG to review mission set-ups, OCG and the field teams determined that 2013 was an opportune time to review the Haiti mission.

Through an analysis of the events that have marked MSF’s history since 2003, this series of case studies and historical accounts describes the evolution of MSF's humanitarian ambitions, the resistance to these ambitions and the political arrangements that overcame this resistance (or that failed to do so).

The evaluation looks at the process for managing MSF-OCP's construction/rehabilitation projects since 2012. The main problems identified are not related to the process itself, but the way it is put into application. The main users pointed out the long delays (periods of indicision) as being the biggest difficulty, followed by budget/cost issues (cost/m² estimates) , and the quality of constructions (techniques, materials, etc). One of the root causes of delays relates to unclear/incomplete definition of roles and responsibilities = actions to take.

In recent years, MSF has recognised the need to improve its handover process and outcomes. It is no longer satisfactory for the organisation to enter a country, put in place a programme and leave without some degree of accountability for what remains after MSF’s departure. This tendency has led the MSF Operational Centre Paris (OCP) to review the handover process of the Homa Bay County Hospital project in Kenya. The main goal of this evaluation is to explore how effective the handover strategy was in contributing to sustainable, comprehensive quality of HIV/TB care in Homa Bay.

This evaluation has been triggered by the recent finding that a substantial proportion of the Changara project’s patients had a high VL of more than 3,000 copies/ml (the criteria at the time), raising questions on the efficacy of the counselling services. Although the relationship between counselling and high VL remains unclear, this report details three key recommendations aimed at improving the overall efficacy of the counselling services.

Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January 2010, MSF’s Committee of Executive Directors decided to conduct a global review of MSF’s response to the disaster. This exercise covered the interventions of the five operational centres and consisted of six specific reviews looking at the different axes of the response: global/operational, medical/surgical, logistic/supply, communication, human resources and fund raising. An intended inter-sectional finance review and/or audit did not take place. Evaluators consider this the biggest limitation of this review exercise.

This evaluation was conducted by Francis Coteur (Logistics), Luis Encinas (Medical/Patient perception), Amaia Esparza (Communications), Paula Frankema (Global/Operations), Karine Klein (Fundraising), Laura Kopczak (Supply), Juli Niebuhr (Human Resources), Roger Teck (Medical), Johan von Schreeb (Medical/Surgical), Sabine Kampmüller (Process facilitation, Executive report), Ewald Stals (Team Leader) on behalf of the MSF Vienna Evaluation Unit.
