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.

Au cours des dernières années, MSF-OCG a élaboré une politique opérationnelle avec l'ambition d'augmenter et d'améliorer la quantité et la qualité des structures de soins secondaires (ou soins hospitaliers). Cette situation a incité MSF à examiner de plus près les défis, les enseignements et les réalisations en matière de gestion hospitalière afin d'élaborer des stratégies gagnantes pour le démarrage, l'opération et la fermeture de projets pour patients hospitalisés, dans tous les types de contextes.

OCB has undertaken to learn from its emergency intervention to support the victims of Hurricane Matthew, during which it experienced difficulties providing shelter and reconstruction relief. The aim is to evaluate the distribution of reconstruction materials in remote and hard to reach areas covering the entire duration and geographical area; Grand’Anse and Sud Department from 6 October 2016 to 20 February 2017.

OCBA commenced a new mental health intervention in the city of Buenaventura in February 2015 with the aim to support victims of violence. The project was set up to demonstrate an innovative approach with two principle elements: a) a focus on a mass media campaign as the main means of communication, and b) a provision of therapeutic sessions on the phone.

In 2015 MSF-OCB launched a review to assess the perception, by the field teams, of an increased organisational “bureaucratic” burden. The review spanned three phases, from problem identification, to an in depth field study, to a final phase of webinars to improve the coverage and overall accuracy of the findings. The review process culminated in 2 missions agreeing to pilot a new monitoring and reporting system based on the principles coming out of the review, starting asap.

In May 2016, concerns were raised at OCB HQ about the potential underestimation of the general IRFFG implementation costs. The OCB mission in Haiti had to retroactively disburse an unbudgeted 1.33M€ of severance pay to their staff, more than a year after the IRFFG implementation in the country.

In the last few years, MSF OCG has developed an Operational Policy with the ambition to increase and improve the quantity and quality of secondary health care structures (or inpatient care). This recognition has prompted the organization to take a closer look at the challenges, lessons and accomplishments in terms of hospital management to develop strategies that will enable the organization to successfully set up, govern, implement and exit inpatient projects in all types of contexts.

In late 2013 and early 2014, thousands of people fled the Central African Republic (CAR) to neighbouring Cameroon. MSF OCG provided health care to the refugee population in Garoua-Boulai and Gbiti, which was characterized by high mortality rates, malnutrition rates over twice the emergency threshold and an uncontrolled measles outbreak.

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).

In 2010 the operational prospects for OCB (strategic operational plan) outlined the broad objectives for the coming three years and placed renewed attention on key medical areas including surgery and emergency and acute medicine, bringing about increased investment in two hospital programs where OCB focussed on providing emergency surgical care in third level facilities in Tabarre and Kunduz.

The purpose of this evaluation was to assess the functioning of the hospital set-up in Léogâne, Haiti one year after its implementation and to capture the lessons learned in order to inform other missions that attempt this type of set-up. The conclusions are based on two visits, the first at the 6-month mark and the second approximately one year following the initial implementation. In general, there is a positive attitude towards the set-up and the advantage of quick and relevant decision-making was felt in most departments at almost all levels.

This evaluation was conducted by Annie Désilets on behalf of the MSF Vienna Evaluation Unit.
