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 review analyses the timeliness and relevance of MSF emergency response, taking into account local actors and environment in Japan. Despite a good reactivity and explorations in remote areas affected (relevant), MSF actions can gain in efficiency (E-Prep, list of contacts, better knowledge of national strategies, etc). Capitalisation on Nuclear risks remains an issue to consider seriously.

The HIV/AIDS project in Chamanculo Health area has achieved an impressive coverage of the ART treatment through the well-applied decentralization and task-shifting strategies. The evaluation demonstrated that the quality of the care was not compromised through this process. This decentralization model shall be valuable for the MoH to scale-up their ART treatment coverage in other areas of this resource-poor country.

Towards the end of 2006/ early 2007, MSF-OCB opened a primary health care project in Chhattisgarh, India, part of the Red Corridor within which a low-intensity conflict is taking place between Maoists and Government. The situation remains volatile with potential for the project to remain operational for some years. Within this context, and given no history of previous evaluations, a decision was taken to assess the relevance and impact of the project, as well as the appropriateness of operational strategies in relation to these, including the potential for phase out.

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.

This study sheds light on the mechanisms producing the official data used by humanitarian aid decision makers. It views Early Warning Systems (EWS) as tools that facilitate consensus between the decision-makers involved in the allocation of food aid, enabling them to reach institutional agreements. This argument is strengthened by a socio-theoretical analysis and by ethnographic observation of experts' practice in Ethiopia (2002-2004), whose results of food aid evaluations appear as a combination of empirical and political factors.

The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the handover of the HIV program to the Bureau of Health (BoH) in the Kahsay Abera Hospital (KAH), Humera, Ethiopia, in 2007. The lessons learnt during the handover process could be of value to other MSF teams faced with an impeding handover of activities to the local health structure. A document in this vein was written directly following the handover in July 2007 however this current text acts as an updated version using the knowledge gained during the ten months following handover.

MSF-CH’s project for street children in Tegucigalpa started in 2005 and has been gradually adapted and revised to focus on the actual target population: children and youth sleeping permanently or temporarily in the streets who are more at risk to suffer from violence. Between the end of September and mid-October a visit was done to evaluate the programme of MSF-Switzerland for street children in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The main objectives of the visit were: 1.

French report. Le projet initial de MSF à Bongor était d'assurer la fonctionnalité correcte d'un centre de formation de Bongor pour la formation des médecins généralistes en chirurgie de base. Une des difficultés quant au déroulement harmonieux du projet était d'éviter d'avoir un service de chirurgie de haute qualité au sein de l'hôpital avec à côté des services de médecine et de pédiatrie connaissant de grandes difficultés et une mauvaise prise en charge des malades.
