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.

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).

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.

2005 was marked by two major natural calamities, the tsunami waves in South East Asia and the earthquake in Kashmir, Pakistan. Both of them were followed by a large intervention of MSF. After the initial assessment, MSF Belgium concentrated his efforts on the district of Bagh. The report will focus on the first 3 months of the intervention. As only a few documents are available, it was requested to reconstitute a chronology of intervention. Secondly, when there was time available, a short description and appreciation of the interventions of the other MSF sections was asked.

After seven years of existence and shortly before its closure, Cell 2 and the Direction of Operations launched a lessons-learned exercise of the Cardiovascular Emergency Project set at Hospital No. 9 in Grozny, Chechnya. The objective of this review was to relate the main steps and lessons of this so-called "atypical" medical project, at least in the light of MSF's experience, mobilizing a high-tech clinical expertise such as thrombolysis and angiography.

This review of operational choices and decisions in Pakistan was carried out in 2011 and has now been produced in a shorter summary version. The report provides a historical overview of OCB presence in the country and looks at the way that the operational strategy developed over time, both in response to the external factors but also as OCB used a number of strategies to create an operational space. Many of the findings remain valid today within Pakistan and also in similar missions. A full version of the report is available from Stockholm Evaluation Unit.

The objective of this lessons learnt exercise was to assess the advantages and disadvantages of the UNITAID grant governance and management model for project achievements in terms of medical (and related) outcomes, strategic decisions, the potential for collaboration between multiple MSF entities and to leverage the learnings for replication in future projects. The exercise showed that the project directly delivered a new, more effective, simpler and much cheaper treatment to patients across seven countries.

After a very intense and difficult one week response to support the MoH Hospital with specialised burn trauma capacity, the cell and mission brought in Stockholm Evaluation Unit to facilitate an internal Retrospect process to help the team identify key lessons and to bring closure to the project team. Note, the Retrospect does not aim to make independent judgement or analysis, only to facilitate bringing out the lessons and to help synthesize these into actionable outcomes.

Since 2014, MSF has been implementing health programs for key populations (KP) mainly along a major transport corridor running through Mozambique and Malawi.

This evaluation was conceived to evaluate each program individually, and then to look at all programs comparatively in order to discern which interventions were most effective. Furthermore, the intention was to consider the sum of the MSF experience in these programs to infer an optimal model of care that responds best to the health needs.

 

This evaluation was conducted by Richard Bedell & Victoria Bungay under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit of MSF. Finalized in December 2018.
