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.

In 2015 MSF-OCB launched a review to assess the perception, by the field teams, of an increased organisational “bureaucratic” burden. The review spanned three phases, from problem identification, to an in depth field study, to a final phase of webinars to improve the coverage and overall accuracy of the findings. The review process culminated in 2 missions agreeing to pilot a new monitoring and reporting system based on the principles coming out of the review, starting asap.

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).

2015 saw the first large scale Meningitis C outbreak in Africa since 1979. A number of challenges and problems had been noted in the way MSF operational sections in Niger, not least in terms of intersectional collaboration. Some lessons from the 2015 response had been captured. When, at the beginning of 2016, all OCs were getting ready again to respond, it was decided to evaluate the 2016 intervention in real-time.

After 10 years in Zinder, the MSF mission is preparing for a successful handover of the project to the national authorities. Most of the work has been completed, and MSF can be proud of its accomplishments in Zinder. However, MSF still needs to ‘run the last mile’ in order to close its cycle in Zinder and to leave its nutritional involvement completely to the national authorities.The current evaluation was a follow-up on the initial capitalisation report done in 2014 and was initiated to assess the future of this handover.

Chemical prevention of seasonal malaria (CPS) has been implemented in Niger since 2013, pursuant to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the national anti-malaria policy. It consists of a mass campaign involving the administration of curative doses of sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) and amodiaquine (AQ) to children between the ages of 3 and 59 months for three days, at 28-day intervals, between July and November.

The evaluation looks at the process for managing MSF-OCP's construction/rehabilitation projects since 2012. The main problems identified are not related to the process itself, but the way it is put into application. The main users pointed out the long delays (periods of indicision) as being the biggest difficulty, followed by budget/cost issues (cost/m² estimates) , and the quality of constructions (techniques, materials, etc). One of the root causes of delays relates to unclear/incomplete definition of roles and responsibilities = actions to take.
