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.

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.

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.

In 2015 MSF-OCB launched a review to assess the perception, by the field teams, of an increased organisational “bureaucratic” burden. The review spanned three phases, from problem identification, to an in depth field study, to a final phase of webinars to improve the coverage and overall accuracy of the findings. The review process culminated in 2 missions agreeing to pilot a new monitoring and reporting system based on the principles coming out of the review, starting asap.

In May 2016, concerns were raised at OCB HQ about the potential underestimation of the general IRFFG implementation costs. The OCB mission in Haiti had to retroactively disburse an unbudgeted 1.33M€ of severance pay to their staff, more than a year after the IRFFG implementation in the country.

Since MSF’s return to Afghanistan in 2009, its operations on the ground have been monitored with a spyglass, unlike any other mission in this kind of environment. Consequently, OCs have been pushed to innovate but also remain critical vis-a-vis their respective strategies and the overall modus operandi of the Afghan mission. This evaluation of the single representation set up aims to analyse and learn from the current state of affairs of the Afghan mission in view of possible ways forward.

Suite au séisme du 12 janvier 2010 en Haïti, MSF-OCG intervient en urgence dans la zone touchée et offre des soins aux blessés. Alors qu’une grande partie des structures de santé de la zone affectée par le séisme sont endommagées ou détruites, MSF-OCG décide de s’impliquer rapidement dans une intervention à moyen terme, soit la mise en place d’un hôpital en container de 120 lits sur la commune de Léogâne (épicentre du tremblement de terre où 80% des bâtiments ont été détruit).

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.
