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.

After seven years of existence and shortly before its closure, Cell 2 and the Direction of Operations launched a lessons-learned exercise of the Cardiovascular Emergency Project set at Hospital No. 9 in Grozny, Chechnya. The objective of this review was to relate the main steps and lessons of this so-called "atypical" medical project, at least in the light of MSF's experience, mobilizing a high-tech clinical expertise such as thrombolysis and angiography.

In Chad, MSF-OCA strategy of long-term projects and rapid responses to emergencies negatively impacted the standard decentralised supply approach; leading to supply constraints and sub-optimal supply quality standard. To tackle the issue, MSF-OCA Chad mission started to implement a centrally managed unallocated inventory strategy in early-2013.

Through this evaluation, MSF-OCA seeks to appraise how the inventory management outside the standard norm has benefited a mission like Chad, as well as reflecting on its original intended purpose, and its potential replicability.

Au cours des dernières années, MSF-OCG a élaboré une politique opérationnelle avec l'ambition d'augmenter et d'améliorer la quantité et la qualité des structures de soins secondaires (ou soins hospitaliers). Cette situation a incité MSF à examiner de plus près les défis, les enseignements et les réalisations en matière de gestion hospitalière afin d'élaborer des stratégies gagnantes pour le démarrage, l'opération et la fermeture de projets pour patients hospitalisés, dans tous les types de contextes.

In the last few years, MSF OCG has developed an Operational Policy with the ambition to increase and improve the quantity and quality of secondary health care structures (or inpatient care). This recognition has prompted the organization to take a closer look at the challenges, lessons and accomplishments in terms of hospital management to develop strategies that will enable the organization to successfully set up, govern, implement and exit inpatient projects in all types of contexts.

This evaluation assesses the results of the entire OCA Wardher project from 2008 – 2015, drawing lessons from this engagement, including on how to best engage in conflict prone and similar fragile context in the future. It is also an opportunity for MSF to reflect on this project for future interventions.

The evaluation looks at the process for managing MSF-OCP's construction/rehabilitation projects since 2012. The main problems identified are not related to the process itself, but the way it is put into application. The main users pointed out the long delays (periods of indicision) as being the biggest difficulty, followed by budget/cost issues (cost/m² estimates) , and the quality of constructions (techniques, materials, etc). One of the root causes of delays relates to unclear/incomplete definition of roles and responsibilities = actions to take.

A series of failures was the starting point for this analysis. Several outbreaks of hepatitis E, transmitted via the water supply, occurred in refugee and IDP sites in the Sahel (Sudan in 2004, and Chad in 2007) and in central Africa (Central African Republic in 2002, and Uganda in 2007). MSF was responsible for all or part of the water supply, as well as medical care. These outbreaks are a reminder that significant infectious risks persists even after we implement our usual procedures.
