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.

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.

A series of failures was the starting point for this analysis. Several outbreaks of hepatitis E, transmitted via the water supply, occurred in refugee and IDP sites in the Sahel (Sudan in 2004, and Chad in 2007) and in central Africa (Central African Republic in 2002, and Uganda in 2007). MSF was responsible for all or part of the water supply, as well as medical care. These outbreaks are a reminder that significant infectious risks persists even after we implement our usual procedures.

The Ebola Workshop in Dakar, held over 3 days in June 2015, brought together experienced Ebola field people and HQ staff from diverse specialties and all MSF sections to reflect on lessons learned so far and make recommendations in the areas of outreach response, patient care, human resources and strategy. Participants placed a high value on intersectional approaches within MSF, and on strong engagement with key external organizations in preparing flexible, adapted, more effective responses to future outbreaks of Ebola or other mass epidemics.

La chimio-prévention du paludisme saisonnier (CPS) a été mise en œuvre au Niger depuis 2013, conformément aux recommandations de l'Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) et à la politique nationale de lutte contre le paludisme. Elle se déroule sous la forme d’une campagne de masse qui consiste en l’administration de doses curatives de sulphadoxine-pyriméthamine (SP) et d'amodiaquine (AQ) durant trois jours, à 28 jours d’intervalle entre juillet et novembre, aux enfants de 3 à 59 mois.

The MSF-OCG handover process of the nutritional programme in Zinder was evaluated with the objective to assess best practices, challenges and lessons learnt of the handover/integration process of the Zinder CRENI to the hospital, with the main purpose to improve handover processes in such contexts as well as decision-making in future projects. The evaluation has confirmed the pertinence of MSF in Zinder since 2005 and has contributed to the reduction of the infant mortality rate.

La revue critique des projets de Zinder et Magaria couvrant les années 2011 à 2013 a été commissionnée pour évaluer la pertinence et l'efficacité des programmes, l’impact éventuel des changements à l’échelle régionale et nationale sur la capacité de MSF à atteindre ses objectifs et la pertinence des stratégies d’adaptation. Points généraux : L'évaluation confirme les acquis de la mission dans sa capacité de mener à bien les services hospitaliers pédiatriques et nutritionnels de qualité.

MSF OCP Field Coordinators requested this review in order to clarify the future perspectives related to this long term mission with stakeholders and field visits in West Bank; it allowed to confirm the relevance of working in Palestinian Occupied territories (PoT), but future operational objectives need to be reconsidered and adapted to the on-going context in West bank, such as areas of intervention or target populations (analyses were based on main historical events over time and operational response, MSF and Partners - EU/Echo invited - NGOs met on the spot).

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.
