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.

As part of a HIV/AIDS programme in Kinshasa, MSF introduced in 2005 an initiative of decentralising HIV services in primary healthcare (PHC).

The aim of this initiative is to improve access to care and service quality of the various health facilities in Kinshasa. The decentralisation approach has undergone many changes and adjustments since it was first established, particularly regarding the selection of the centres targeted and the type of support provided.

The MSF Sweden Innovation Unit (SIU) aims to promote innovations that help save lives and alleviate suffering, and to develop a culture of innovation within MSF. Since its initial creation in 2012, the SIU has gone  through a rapid period of development. It has been transformed from a project into a separate unit with activities having become more structured and professional, and the number of innovation initiatives and projects increasing along with the unit size.

The review of a Strategic Plan (SP) provides a picture of whether an organisation has achieved what it intended to do for the set period. Three years into the Strategic Plan cycle, the Directorate General of MSF’s Operational Centre in Geneva (OCG) commissioned this review to evaluate the utility, effectiveness, and outcomes of the 2016 – 2019 Strategic Plan. The purpose of the review is to provide input in developing the next Strategic Plan. In view of its forward-looking character, the review is expected to identify lessons that OCG should learn.

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.
