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 recent years, MSF has noted that ‘social violence’ is strongly linked to health exclusion and dysfunctional health systems. Therefore, the Operational Centre Geneva (OCG) initiated an intervention in Honduras in 2010 and a project in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico in January 2014. The current evaluation aims to determine the pertinence, appropriateness, effectiveness and impact of the OCG projects in Honduras and Mexico in responding to identified needs.

In 2010 the operational prospects for OCB (strategic operational plan) outlined the broad objectives for the coming three years and placed renewed attention on key medical areas including surgery and emergency and acute medicine, bringing about increased investment in two hospital programs where OCB focussed on providing emergency surgical care in third level facilities in Tabarre and Kunduz.

This survey investigates patients’ coping mechanisms and their dependence on medical institutions both from the patients’ standpoint and from that of MSF’s project teams.

The purpose of this evaluation was to assess the functioning of the hospital set-up in Léogâne, Haiti one year after its implementation and to capture the lessons learned in order to inform other missions that attempt this type of set-up. The conclusions are based on two visits, the first at the 6-month mark and the second approximately one year following the initial implementation. In general, there is a positive attitude towards the set-up and the advantage of quick and relevant decision-making was felt in most departments at almost all levels.

This evaluation was conducted by Annie Désilets on behalf of the MSF Vienna Evaluation Unit.

Following the earthquake in 2010 and the emergency response that ensued, MSF-OCG took the decision to invest in a hospital in the Leogane area that was for several years the biggest hospital managed by MSF-OCG. Given that for the last three years this was the only MSF-OCG project in the country, that the capital is located only two hours from the hospital and that there is a strategic ambition within MSF-OCG to review mission set-ups, OCG and the field teams determined that 2013 was an opportune time to review the Haiti mission.

This evaluation contributes to the debate around the OCB Martissant intervention following the proposed closure and resulting decision to scale down in 2013. The report concludes that the context remains similar to that of the beginning therefore the intervention is still as relevant as it was in 2006 however the evaluation questions the suitability of OCB's country wide strategy in Haiti, urging a focus towards the most vulnerable and marginalised urban populations, rather than towards the general needs of the population.
