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 objective of this lessons learnt exercise was to assess the advantages and disadvantages of the UNITAID grant governance and management model for project achievements in terms of medical (and related) outcomes, strategic decisions, the potential for collaboration between multiple MSF entities and to leverage the learnings for replication in future projects. The exercise showed that the project directly delivered a new, more effective, simpler and much cheaper treatment to patients across seven countries.

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.

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.

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.

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.
