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.

In 2015, MSF operations and medical directors recognised antibiotic resistance (ABR) as a priority and called for the elaboration of an intersectional roadmap to tackle ABR in MSF projects. The MSF ABR Task Force was consolidated in 2017 with joint medical and operational governance.

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.

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.

Integration of HIV/TB services is one of the priorities for the MSF movement since 2010 and in particular for OCBA that started hand over of the so-called vertical programs in the same year. This process has finished for the total of 16 vertical HIV programs of MSF-OCBA started since 2005. Integration aims to provide access to HIV/TB care to all populations in need in locations where MSF has implemented regular projects, regardless of the HIV prevalence in places such as CAR (started in 2008), South Sudan (2011) and Niger (2014).

This report is a review of advocacy within the MSF movement from 2010-2015. Commissioned by the core ExCom, the aim of this review was to explore the effectiveness of MSF advocacy and produce recommendations to improve its approach, coordination and organization in support to operations within the movement. Two external evaluation consultants, Glenn O’Neil and Liesbeth Schockaert, conducted the review with the support of Nirupama Sarma who carried out a complementary review of the Access Campaign (AC).

The review aimed to capture learnings from this difficult exit process in South Sudan and provides an overview of the root causes identified. Some external factors are linked to the context and the position of the authorities and they must be considered as hard to influence. The internal lessons identified can be addressed by OCB. The two key areas are the communication and working relation with South Sudanese staff and use of the (existing) know-how in OCB in regards to exiting a project.

In recent years, MSF has recognised the need to improve its handover process and outcomes. It is no longer satisfactory for the organisation to enter a country, put in place a programme and leave without some degree of accountability for what remains after MSF’s departure. This tendency has led the MSF Operational Centre Paris (OCP) to review the handover process of the Homa Bay County Hospital project in Kenya. The main goal of this evaluation is to explore how effective the handover strategy was in contributing to sustainable, comprehensive quality of HIV/TB care in Homa Bay.
