Evaluation reports are either openly accessible via pdf download, or accessible via MSF's internal Sharepoint, which is mainly due to the sensitive nature of the operational contexts and resulting content. However, there are ongoing 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.

Given that community HIV testing is often more expensive than HF-based testing, this evaluation aims to fully understand the relative advantages of community testing modalities. MSF has been providing 3 modalities of community HIV testing in KZN since late 2012, to complement the standard, health facility (HF)-based testing provided by the Department of Health. Fixed sites (FS), Mobile 1-Stop Shops (M1SS) and Door-to-Door Community Health Agents (CHAPs) provide testing throughout the project area of Eshowe, Mbongolowane and the adjacent rural areas.

Since early 2004 OCA has been implementing in Chechnya a DOTS Tuberculosis program through “remote control” using TB facilities and staff of the Republican Ministry of Health TB Program. This DOTS TB program has been successful in its implementation, its phased expansion and its treatment outcome (persistent high success rates with low death, defaulter and failure rates).

In May 2007 MSF-OCA integrated the drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) treatment programme into the horizontal primary and secondary health care programme at Shabunda, located in South Kivu District of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The three patients were started on the DR-TB treatment on 17th May 2007. MSF closed the project by the end of 2007, but continued taking responsibility for the treatment of the three DR-TB patients through remote supervision by providing medical, laboratory and social support.
