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.

In recent years, MSF has recognised the need to improve its handover process and outcomes. It is no longer satisfactory for the organisation to enter a country, put in place a programme and leave without some degree of accountability for what remains after MSF’s departure. This tendency has led the MSF Operational Centre Paris (OCP) to review the handover process of the Homa Bay County Hospital project in Kenya. The main goal of this evaluation is to explore how effective the handover strategy was in contributing to sustainable, comprehensive quality of HIV/TB care in Homa Bay.

OCB initiated the Kibera project at a time when there was a lack of access to affordable HIV/TB health care and succeeded in providing HIV drugs in Kenya, against all odds. The initial decision to intervene in Kibera was based on need and while the needs remain massive, OCB is no longer alone in providing HIV and TB treatment, hence the opportunity to handover the responsibilities of the health facilities to the Nairobi County to ensure that the population is not abandoned and that the quality care and treatment is continued.

This evaluation finds that the Kibera Project has had a tremendous impact at the patient, community and policy level. Additionally, the report points out that the decentralisation of health services at the primary health care level has been a core tenet of the project as it has evolved from a vertical HIV/AIDS programme to a multi-clinic operation offering comprehensive health care.

In the last decade, while facing increasingly complex “projects”, MSF-OCP has chosen to add means to improve its interventions. This results in the actual growth syndrome of MSF-OCP HQ departments, which is also significantly impacting country coordination (CC) set-ups and means. New scenarios should be tested, notably for mono-projects (to revise), the idea being to reduce CC set-ups whenever possible. Resources' analyses highlight the importance of competent persons to follow (coordinators & key positions), including PCs, with a clearer career path.

This evaluation aimed at gaining perspective on and learning from current partnership practices, informing the debate on MSF’s policy on partnerships and providing guidance for future engagement. Four separate field evaluations in DRC, Kenya, Niger and North Korea as well as a desk review of seven additional partnerships have been conducted. The report provides good practice examples and practical recommendations.

Since October 1991, the Rift Valley, Western and Nyanza provinces of Kenya have been affected by ethnic clashes. The violence has resulted in over 1,500 deaths and approximately 300,000 displaced people. MSF opened its mission in February 1994. To achieve its goal, 3 key strategies were adopted:1) to provide relief by working through churches & local NGOs and strengthening their capacity,2) to hire national staff with the same status and responsibilities than MSF expatriates and 3) to enhance local community participation in the mission activities.
