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.

Despite a 5 day SIAs by MOH in 2014, a new outbreak began in Katanga/DRC and spread throughout 2015. A comprehensive, integrated “3 headed” response was chosen by MSF-OCG in 3 Health Zones (HZ) of Tanganyika, including preventive and curative activities (for measles, malaria, and malnutrition): although quite ambitious given available HR resources, this was relevant given these “three” on-going emergencies in Tanganyika.

Measles epidemics occur in Katanga (KTA)/DRC, challenging early response strategies for outbreak control. In 2015, despite MOH delay in declaring the epidemic, OCP present in KTA, showed good reactivity in 5 Health Zones (HZ) of Ht Lomami with a so called “vertical” response (focused on measles: vaccination and case management). However, malaria and malnutrition should have been better considered (OCG chose a “3 diseases strategy”). The 6 to 8 weeks long vaccination campaigns were efficient as the ZS outbreaks stopped after a few weeks.

MSF OCB commissioned an extensive multi-sectoral critical review of its Ebola intervention. The summary report highlights key findings from all specific reports and draws global conclusions. Lessons have been identified both, for future large scale emergency responses as well as for a next Ebola response. Many of lessons identified are not entirely new, but their importance has been strongly accentuated by the extremity of this health crisis. Priority recommendations are listed in the summary report, while specific recommendations are made in the respective reports.

The following persons have contributed to this report: Virginie Adams, Dr Marie-Pierre Allié, Pierre Beurrier, Murray Biedler, Elio de Bonis, Prof. Robert Colebunder, David Curtis, Gillian Dacey, Veronique de Clerck, Dr Javier Gabaldon, Xavier Henry, Francois Mounis and Veronica Sanchez.

L'évaluation fait partie de l'accord de financement avec le bailleur. En outre, étant donnés les changements que le projet a vécu récemment, le moment est opportun pour évaluer les stratégies mises en place afin de fournir de nouvelles recommandations pour la mise en œuvre du projet en Guinée. L'évaluation englobe aussi le renforcement des structures de santé périphériques.

The evaluation aims to assess the strategies put in place in order to provide further recommendations for implementation of the project in Guinea. The report details four key recommendations, aimed at improving access to HIV care for people living with HIV (PLHIV) in CTA Matam and at the peripheral health structures supported by MSF.

During the 2014-2015 Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa, MSF built a number of Ebola Treatment Centres (ETCs). MSF set up centres in the three countries at different moments and with different MSF Operational Sections, which resulted in a heterogenic collection of solutions. This review was conducted jointly for all MSF operational centers (OCs). It was commissioned by OCA and was conducted as part of the OCB Ebola review. 

This publication was produced at the request of MSF OCA coordinated within a broader review on OCB's response to the Ebola emergency, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Veronica Sanchez Carrera.

Between late 2010 and the end of 2014 and under extremely difficult conditions, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) carried out a project to combat Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), also known as sleeping sickness, in the Dingila, Ango and Zobia regions of Orientale Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). HAT in DRC is caused by Trypanosoma brucei gambiense and is transmitted by the tsetse fly (Glossina genus) of the Palpalis group. Without effective treatment, virtually all first-stage HAT patients and one hundred per cent of second-stage patients will die.

Entre fin 2010 et fin 2014, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) a, dans des conditions extrêmement difficiles, mené un projet de lutte contre la trypanosomiase humaine africaine (THA) ou maladie du sommeil dans la région de Dingila, Ango et Zobia, dans la Province Orientale de la République Démocratique du Congo (RDC). La THA en RDC est causée par Trypanosoma brucei gambiense et y est transmise par des glossines (mouches tsé-tsé) du groupe palpalis. Sans traitement efficace, quasi tous les malades au premier stade et cent pourcent de malades au deuxième stade de la THA meurent.
