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 MSF-OCG handover process of the nutritional programme in Zinder was evaluated with the objective to assess best practices, challenges and lessons learnt of the handover/integration process of the Zinder CRENI to the hospital, with the main purpose to improve handover processes in such contexts as well as decision-making in future projects. The evaluation has confirmed the pertinence of MSF in Zinder since 2005 and has contributed to the reduction of the infant mortality rate.

This evaluation finds project performance to be highly satisfactory and identifies some critical obstacles relating to the continuity of care. The capacity of the local partners to continue with the implementation of the strategic framework for the fight against HIV/ Aids and TB when MSF departs is severely compromised. The report urges MSF to place more emphasis on identifying a feasible partner for handover before engaging as a leader in such contexts.

Médecins Sans Frontières has been running HIV/AIDS treatment programmes since 2001. As national systems scaled up capacity, MSF began to hand over HIV projects in 2005. Variable experience with handover and internal debates about MSF responsibility to patients led OCG to propose an evaluation of the handover process, to learn from experience and inform policy and practice. A qualitative review was carried out through interviews, case studies in Cameroon and Laos, and review of other vertical and integrated HIV projects.
