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.

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.

This evaluation takes stock of the two and a half year handover process that started in June 2011. The evaluation highlights both the operational strengths and weaknesses and identifies areas for improvement. The work aims to inform the replicability of the handover tools and approach. The evaluation finds that, at patient level, there has been no impact on the continuity of care and that gives a good indication of a sustainable and smooth take over by MoH.

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.

Through an analysis of the events that have marked MSF’s history since 2003, this series of case studies and historical accounts describes the evolution of MSF's humanitarian ambitions, the resistance to these ambitions and the political arrangements that overcame this resistance (or that failed to do so).

This review of operational choices and decisions in Pakistan was carried out in 2011 and has now been produced in a shorter summary version. The report provides a historical overview of OCB presence in the country and looks at the way that the operational strategy developed over time, both in response to the external factors but also as OCB used a number of strategies to create an operational space. Many of the findings remain valid today within Pakistan and also in similar missions. A full version of the report is available from Stockholm Evaluation Unit.

In Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world according to UNDP, Médecins Sans Frontières Belgium has been supporting MOH in the provision of HIV care since 1997 in Thyolo district, with provision of ART since 2003. MSF is looking to hand over program activities and phase out their presence. This external evaluation was commissioned with the overall objective of studying the perception of other stakeholders’ perception of the MSF support to Thyolo district health services.

The overall objective of the evaluation is to identify and describe factors and issues to consider when planning implementation or continuation of Remote Control Programmes (RCPs) as an alternative to cancelling Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) programme implementation in a particular region/ country.
