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.

This evaluation looks at the OCBA response in the Upper Nile crisis in 2014. OCBA, with emergency response as its core action, attempts to examine the response in real time. It’s the first time OCBA uses the real time evaluation as a tool for improving their emergency programs. The report describes the way OCBA responded to the needs of the displaced in a volatile context. The analysis focuses on the relevance, appropriateness and effectiveness of the program and coordination between the regular and emergency missions, other MSF sections and various external actors.

Following the restart of armed fights in South Sudan in December 2013, MSF-OCG responded to the influx of displaced and the consequent health-related needs in Minkaman village. Main findings show that after an initial delay of 6 days between the alert and conducting the first assessment, a timely response has been launched for the displaced persons, with OCG taking the lead on water supply and health care. The top ten priority package was applied with shortcomings particularly in terms of the initial assessment.

This evaluation of the MSF OCB Maputo HIV/Aids Project aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the implementation phases of the MoH handover and related consequences to the continuity of patient care, and with the added objective to make clear recommendations towards improvements and replicability of the handover ‘tool’ itself.

This document describes the Lessons identified during the emergency phase of the OCA Maban intervention. It summarises the successes and challenges encountered during the project, lists the important learning themes arising from these successes and challenges, and includes a set of lessons derived from an analysis of these learning points.

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.

In 2009/2010 following the decentralisation of HIV care to primary health care in Maputo City, the former MSF-OCG Alto Maé day hospital was transformed into the chronic care HIV referral centre Centro de Referência Alto Maé (CRAM) with a double purpose: 1) to provide a safety net for the health centres of Chamanculo health area for the clinical management of complex HIV patients that do not require hospitalisation and 2) to reduce the workload of Maputo’s referral hospitals.

This evaluation was conducted by Eric Goemaere and Heidi Becher on behalf of the Vienna Evaluation Unit.

The OCB intervention in Maban started in 2011 and quickly grew to become the single largest intervention for 2012. Within this extremely challenging and rapidly developing context OCB deployed significant resources to meet the needs of the refugee population. The evaluation looks at the first months of the intervention between the time of the initial assessment and the handover to the emergency desk at the height of the emergency. The report finds that the intervention was seen positively and the outputs highly appreciated by everybody involved.

Given the health needs, the relevance of MSF-OCP intervention in Yida refugee camp (60 000) makes no doubts. Analyses highlight reasons for the delay in scaling up the project in emergency phase, April to August 2012 : if at the end, efficacy/efficiency of operations were ensured, lessosn must be drawn from this intervention. Omitting to set up a surveillance system and refusing to engage in non-medical activities constituted strategic failures.

The evaluation looks at how MSF-OCB support in Mavalane is percieved by stakeholders and gives orientation to the planing for handover of 1st line support activities. The evaluation identifies the important role MSF plays in HIV programming in Mozambique; MSF comes out strongly as an advocate, a technical partner and a motor for change.
