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.

Suite au séisme du 12 janvier 2010 en Haïti, MSF-OCG intervient en urgence dans la zone touchée et offre des soins aux blessés. Alors qu’une grande partie des structures de santé de la zone affectée par le séisme sont endommagées ou détruites, MSF-OCG décide de s’impliquer rapidement dans une intervention à moyen terme, soit la mise en place d’un hôpital en container de 120 lits sur la commune de Léogâne (épicentre du tremblement de terre où 80% des bâtiments ont été détruit).

This report is a review of advocacy within the MSF movement from 2010-2015. Commissioned by the core ExCom, the aim of this review was to explore the effectiveness of MSF advocacy and produce recommendations to improve its approach, coordination and organization in support to operations within the movement. Two external evaluation consultants, Glenn O’Neil and Liesbeth Schockaert, conducted the review with the support of Nirupama Sarma who carried out a complementary review of the Access Campaign (AC).

The review aimed to capture learnings from this difficult exit process in South Sudan and provides an overview of the root causes identified. Some external factors are linked to the context and the position of the authorities and they must be considered as hard to influence. The internal lessons identified can be addressed by OCB. The two key areas are the communication and working relation with South Sudanese staff and use of the (existing) know-how in OCB in regards to exiting a project.

This evaluation has been triggered by the recent finding that a substantial proportion of the Changara project’s patients had a high VL of more than 3,000 copies/ml (the criteria at the time), raising questions on the efficacy of the counselling services. Although the relationship between counselling and high VL remains unclear, this report details three key recommendations aimed at improving the overall efficacy of the counselling services.

In October 2013 MSF developed a proposal for a new WHS strategy for meeting the medical humanitarian needs in large scale emergencies. In May 2015, the MSF Stockholm Evaluation Unit commissioned an evaluation of the 2013 MSF Operational Centre Amsterdam (OCA) strategy for a more offensive WHS approach. The evaluation focused on OCA interventions in South Sudan in Jaman, 2012, Bentui in 2014, CAR/Bossangoa and Bangui in 2014 and Ethiopia/Gambella in 2014. The period of evaluation was the first 3 months of the interventions.

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.

The evaluation looks at the process for managing MSF-OCP's construction/rehabilitation projects since 2012. The main problems identified are not related to the process itself, but the way it is put into application. The main users pointed out the long delays (periods of indicision) as being the biggest difficulty, followed by budget/cost issues (cost/m² estimates) , and the quality of constructions (techniques, materials, etc). One of the root causes of delays relates to unclear/incomplete definition of roles and responsibilities = actions to take.

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.
