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.

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.

Au cours des dernières années, MSF-OCG a élaboré une politique opérationnelle avec l'ambition d'augmenter et d'améliorer la quantité et la qualité des structures de soins secondaires (ou soins hospitaliers). Cette situation a incité MSF à examiner de plus près les défis, les enseignements et les réalisations en matière de gestion hospitalière afin d'élaborer des stratégies gagnantes pour le démarrage, l'opération et la fermeture de projets pour patients hospitalisés, dans tous les types de contextes.

In the last few years, MSF OCG has developed an Operational Policy with the ambition to increase and improve the quantity and quality of secondary health care structures (or inpatient care). This recognition has prompted the organization to take a closer look at the challenges, lessons and accomplishments in terms of hospital management to develop strategies that will enable the organization to successfully set up, govern, implement and exit inpatient projects in all types of contexts.

In late 2013 and early 2014, thousands of people fled the Central African Republic (CAR) to neighbouring Cameroon. MSF OCG provided health care to the refugee population in Garoua-Boulai and Gbiti, which was characterized by high mortality rates, malnutrition rates over twice the emergency threshold and an uncontrolled measles outbreak.

An external evaluation of the support programs has been conducted between April and June 2015. This 360° snapshot was aiming at evaluating the appropriateness, the effectiveness and the impact of the support activities operated from Turkey and Lebanon.

The Intersectional Philippines MSF Typhoon Haiyan Emergency Response review was requested by the Executive Committee of MSF. It was designed to examine the operational choices of each Operational Centre, the perceived cost disparity, the role of the MSF regional offices in the emergency and the external perception regarding MSF's added value in the response. The review took place during August and November 2014. Overall the response by MSF to Typhoon Haiyan was well perceived by all involved.

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.
