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.

Through an analysis of the events that have marked MSF’s history since 2003, this series of case studies and historical accounts describes the evolution of MSF's humanitarian ambitions, the resistance to these ambitions and the political arrangements that overcame this resistance (or that failed to do so).

In February 2011, four MSF staff members acquired Lassa Fever in the MSF-run hospital, GRC (2 of whom died). This led OCB to propose an evaluation of the related events occurring in January-March, in order to learn lessons and possibly adjust internal procedures or processes. A qualitative evaluation was carried out through interviews and document-review.

The Gondama Referral Centre (GRC) project is a reference hospital set up by Médecins Sans Frontières – Operational Centre Brussels (MSF-OCB) to provide secondary level healthcare to children under 15 and pregnant and lactating women in Gondama, Bo district in Sierra Leone. The Ministry of Health (MoH) having recently launched a free healthcare policy for the same target group1 provides a window of opportunity for MSF to gradually hand over its activities.

This evaluation was requested by MSF CH Geneva and focuses on the pertinence, efficacy and impact of the sexual violence project in Guatemala. The motivation to evaluate this program stemmed from difficulties at the initial stages of the project in realizing the goals through the original strategies chosen. The results answer key questions about the added value of the intervention regarding the problem of the sexual violence (SV).

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.

Following the handover of AIDS treatment programs to the authorities of Guatemala, MSF conducted a study to assess various aspects of the continuity of HIV/AIDS care. This review was conducted 18 months after MSF left the Roosevelt hospital, and examined both the clinical data and opinions of staff and patients. Despite some shortfalls in the frequency of laboratory testing and community follow up, the level of care and outcomes for the patients was well maintained by the hospital staff.

MSF had been working in Honduras and Guatemala in HIV prevention and care of people living with HIV and AIDS for several years before ART projects were started in 2001. In 2005 the projects were handed over to the National AIDS Programme, though MSF-CH kept some staff in both countries to monitor progress. This evaluation was planned a year and a half after handing over the project, to document the perception of people regarding lessons learnt; whether the project was handed over properly; and the quality of care for people living HIV.
