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 noted that ‘social violence’ is strongly linked to health exclusion and dysfunctional health systems. Therefore, the Operational Centre Geneva (OCG) initiated an intervention in Honduras in 2010 and a project in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico in January 2014. The current evaluation aims to determine the pertinence, appropriateness, effectiveness and impact of the OCG projects in Honduras and Mexico in responding to identified needs.

This publication was produced at the request of MSF OCG, under the management of the Vienna Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Silvia Gurrola Bonilla, MSc. and Regina Escudero Durán, MD.

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.

In September 2009, MSF carried out an assessment of two of its former projects in Karuzi (OCB) and Kinyinya (OCA), Burundi. These two projects were handed over to MOH in 2007 with significant investment from MSF in the handover processes. Following reports of the breakdown of healthcare after MSF’s departure and criticism on the way the handover of these two projects was managed, MSF wanted to assess the current situation in the two sites and document which, if any, handover strategies were successful and led to the continuation of MSF activities.

Médecins Sans Frontières has been running HIV/AIDS treatment programmes since 2001. As national systems scaled up capacity, MSF began to hand over HIV projects in 2005. Variable experience with handover and internal debates about MSF responsibility to patients led OCG to propose an evaluation of the handover process, to learn from experience and inform policy and practice. A qualitative review was carried out through interviews, case studies in Cameroon and Laos, and review of other vertical and integrated HIV projects.

MSF-CH’s project for street children in Tegucigalpa started in 2005 and has been gradually adapted and revised to focus on the actual target population: children and youth sleeping permanently or temporarily in the streets who are more at risk to suffer from violence. Between the end of September and mid-October a visit was done to evaluate the programme of MSF-Switzerland for street children in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The main objectives of the visit were: 1.
