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.

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.

MSF-OCG has been working in South Sudan since 1997; in the area of Abyei since 2006. Due to context changes, MSF had to adapt its medical strategy significantly over the years. This evaluation of project relevance and effectiveness aimed at informing the future strategy. It used a comprehensive cross-sector approach (multidisciplinary) with direct participation of the MSF actors involved in the Agok project at all levels.

Since civil unrest and violence erupted in countries across Northern Africa and the Middle East (referred as NAME in the document) teams from the five MSF OCs (Operational Centres) have been assisting the populations. OCB has mainly been active in Egypt, Bahrain, Libya and Italy (Lampedusa with the influx of migrants from the Northern African regions). Activities and challenges have varied from one context to another. The overall aim of the mapping/compilation is to describe all of OCB’s activities from January to August 2011, in relation to the unrests.

This study was carried out in order to critically appraise the impact of the MSF-CH health care program on a local society in chronic conflict. The overall aim of this study was to understand critical issues in the implementation of the program, and to draw lessons for the future program planning in Marial Lou as well as for similar interventions elsewhere.

In the beginning of 2006, OCB opened a hospital project in Bor, in Jonglei state, South Sudan. This was a little over a year after the CPA (the Comprehensive Peace Agreement) was signed between SPLA and GoS The project soon became one of the highest resources consuming project in an unstable environment. In mid 2008 the decision was taken to close the project. OCB considered that they were unable to manage the hospital. It was not thought that the project in the current format was sustainable security wise, given a number of factors.

Médecins Sans Frontières has been running HIV/AIDS treatment programmes since 2001. As national systems scaled up capacity, MSF began to hand over HIV projects in 2005. Variable experience with handover and internal debates about MSF responsibility to patients led OCG to propose an evaluation of the handover process, to learn from experience and inform policy and practice. A qualitative review was carried out through interviews, case studies in Cameroon and Laos, and review of other vertical and integrated HIV projects.

The evaluation unit in Vienna (MSF-Austria) was requested to analyse the different nutritional strategies implemented in Marial Lou over the past years (2003 – 2006) in terms of appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency, and, to identify recommendations for future similar contexts. After presenting the first results, the evaluator was requested to extend the analysis of outcome data to those of the Niger nutrition program 2005 and 2006, for better comparison of results.

MSF-CH did rehabilitate the Mundari hospital in Kajo Keji County (KKC) and did support the existing OPD from September 1997 onward. Environmental- and political factors and an estimated high HIV prevalence did lead to the decision to implement the first time an integrated HIV/AIDS component (2005). Towards the end of the project it was decided that the handover process, as well as the HIV integrated approach and the capacity build during the last 9 years of presence in KKC should be evaluated.
