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.

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.

This operational evaluation, requested by the Emergency Department of MSFOCB, concerns only the emergency response in Aceh in the first three months (from 26th Dec 2004). The report illustrates MSF intervention strategy, a description of implemented activities and draws lessons learned from the confronted challenges.

Family and Sexual Violence in PNG is pervasive and widespread, centered within the family and the extended family (wantok), and manifests itself as physical or emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and social isolation. There is also a stigma attached to young survivors making it difficult to report. The endemic nature and high rates of violence within the family impact women and children the most in PNG.

MSF is one of the pioneering organisations to implement HIV & AIDS related interventions including ART in different settings. Understandably, the organisation is thus often solicited to provide information on cost analysis of programs. This is the purpose of this study into 3 different MSF HIV/AIDS programs: Kenya, DRC and Malawi. The present study proposes a detailed description of the cost for the HIV/AIDS program in Thyolo in Malawi for the period of time from 2005 to 2007. The methodology used is inspired by the “Activity based costing” (ABC approach)

This evaluation is best understood as a peer review aimed at learning from the experiences of 3 different sections of MSF operating HIV/AIDS programmes in Malawi. Our aim was to evaluate how specific differences in objectives might impact on programme strategies and whether these differences would be relevant when assessing programme outcomes. The general issues of interest were decentralisation, simplification and task shifting in relation to the expansion of ART services.

MSF's HIV/AIDS project in Thyolo district, Malawi was one of the MSF movement's earliest efforts to address HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, beginning in 1997. The handover of project responsibilities from MSF Luxembourg to MSF Belgium took place in 2005. MSF Belgium agreed to undertake this external evaluation of the project with the goal of assessing the project's performance, identifying constraints preventing the achievement of its goals, and proposing recommendations to improve overall effectiveness.
