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.

Four years after the 2005 Niger crisis, many things have changed in the nutrition field. This cahier aims at considering this evolution and exploring new possibilities for action for MSF: how can these changes  get MSF to reconsider its own goals and move its areas of intervention? How can new knowledge and the experience gained by our teams since the crisis in Niger lead to new operational ambitions?

La chimio-prévention du paludisme saisonnier (CPS) a été mise en œuvre au Niger depuis 2013, conformément aux recommandations de l'Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) et à la politique nationale de lutte contre le paludisme.

MSF OCB commissioned an extensive multi-sectoral critical review of its Ebola intervention. The summary report highlights key findings from all specific reports and draws global conclusions. Lessons have been identified both, for future large scale emergency responses as well as for a next Ebola response. Many of lessons identified are not entirely new, but their importance has been strongly accentuated by the extremity of this health crisis. Priority recommendations are listed in the summary report, while specific recommendations are made in the respective reports.

The following persons have contributed to this report: Virginie Adams, Dr Marie-Pierre Allié, Pierre Beurrier, Murray Biedler, Elio de Bonis, Prof. Robert Colebunder, David Curtis, Gillian Dacey, Veronique de Clerck, Dr Javier Gabaldon, Xavier Henry, Francois Mounis and Veronica Sanchez.

During the 2014-2015 Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa, MSF built a number of Ebola Treatment Centres (ETCs). MSF set up centres in the three countries at different moments and with different MSF Operational Sections, which resulted in a heterogenic collection of solutions. This review was conducted jointly for all MSF operational centers (OCs). It was commissioned by OCA and was conducted as part of the OCB Ebola review. 

This publication was produced at the request of MSF OCA coordinated within a broader review on OCB's response to the Ebola emergency, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Veronica Sanchez Carrera.

The objective of this review was to assess the response of OCG, focusing on the Freetown Prince of Wales Ebola Treatment Centre, Sierra Leone (open Dec 2014 to end of Feb 2015) and to reflect on the ability to incorporate “real time lessons learned” during the ongoing management of the outbreak. The evaluation focused on operational infrastructure management (including laboratories), medical & nursing care management, epidemiological control measures, community engagement & mobilisation, capacity building, relationship with other actors and research. 

This publication was produced at the request of MSF OCG, under the management of the Vienna Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Claire Bayntun and Stuart Alexander Zimble.

This is the internal reflection report for OCAs Ebola intervention in Sierra Leone. While there are numerous workshops and reflections being organized across theMSF movement, and this OCA report may form part of the larger process, its primary function willreflect on how we as OCA responded, what we learnt, and what we need to do for possible futureepidemics. The report covers discussions around Operational Decision Making, HQ setup and field supprt, Biosafety, Cinical care in EMCs and Duty of care to our international staff.

2015 saw the first large scale Meningitis C outbreak in Africa since 1979. A number of challenges and problems had been noted in the way MSF operational sections in Niger, not least in terms of intersectional collaboration. Some lessons from the 2015 response had been captured. When, at the beginning of 2016, all OCs were getting ready again to respond, it was decided to evaluate the 2016 intervention in real-time.

This publication was produced at the request of programme managers for Niger in OCB, OCBA, OCG and OCP, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Alyson Froud.

After an initial period of three years in Lesotho, MSF has decided to extend its presence in the country for two more years and to launch a second phase of the project primarily focused on intensifying the transfer of responsibility for the programme to local health authorities and partners. This is due partly to the administrative process now underway in Lesotho to decentralise to local government, coupled with related health sector reforms, which have divided the former catchment area of Scott Hospital Health Service Area into two districts with different management structures.

Following the handover of AIDS treatment programs to the authorities of Guatemala, MSF conducted a study to assess various aspects of the continuity of HIV/AIDS care. This review was conducted 18 months after MSF left the Roosevelt hospital, and examined both the clinical data and opinions of staff and patients. Despite some shortfalls in the frequency of laboratory testing and community follow up, the level of care and outcomes for the patients was well maintained by the hospital staff.
