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 Intersectional Philippines MSF Typhoon Haiyan Emergency Response review was requested by the Executive Committee of MSF. It was designed to examine the operational choices of each Operational Centre, the perceived cost disparity, the role of the MSF regional offices in the emergency and the external perception regarding MSF's added value in the response. The review took place during August and November 2014. Overall the response by MSF to Typhoon Haiyan was well perceived by all involved.

MSF-OCA has been addressing a highly relevant issue, TB and DR-TB in Uzbekistan. A steady decrease of the notification and the mortality rates has been indicating a good outcome of the TB DOTS programme. MSF is highly appreciated by the MOH of Uzbekistan as one of the main partners in TB control and the first one who started the diagnosis and treatment of DR-TB. The current model of comprehensive TB care was estimated as the most appropriate approach for this low-income country with high TB/MDR-TB burden. It could be successfully expanded to elsewhere in the region.

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.

The evaluation describes an evolving approach to address the needs of traumatised internally displaced Indonesians. The evaluation focuses on how MSF responded to new insights documented in lessons learned and trip reports. The purpose of this is to inform a discussion of how to proceed with mental health in Indonesia, which will be formalised in the country policy.
