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).

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.

The Bosnia programme was one of the largest programmes MSF has implemented so far, and it was the first major operation MSF executed in an European environment. There was a widely shared view that the programme had gone “out of control”. As a result, many within MSF considered drug distribution in general as being beyond the scope of MSF. The dominance of drug distribution in the programme was perceived to be in contradiction with the medical identity of MSF.

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.

MSF has received UNITAID grants since 2013. For several financial, operational and opportunistic reasons, the opportunity and adequacy of receiving funds from UNITAID was questioned by the MSF medical and operational directors. In October 2014 the MedOp platform took a decision not to seek any further UNITAID funding for a one-year period-ending in October 2015.

This evaluation was conducted by Nicole Henze on behalf of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit of MSF. Finalised in November 2015. This publication was produced at the request of MSF MedOp, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Nicole Henze.

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.
