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.

In September 2009, MSF carried out an assessment of two of its former projects in Karuzi (OCB) and Kinyinya (OCA), Burundi. These two projects were handed over to MOH in 2007 with significant investment from MSF in the handover processes. Following reports of the breakdown of healthcare after MSF’s departure and criticism on the way the handover of these two projects was managed, MSF wanted to assess the current situation in the two sites and document which, if any, handover strategies were successful and led to the continuation of MSF activities.

The overall objective of the evaluation is to identify and describe factors and issues to consider when planning implementation or continuation of Remote Control Programmes (RCPs) as an alternative to cancelling Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) programme implementation in a particular region/ country.

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.

The evaluation unit in Vienna (MSF-Austria) was requested to analyse the different nutritional strategies implemented in Marial Lou over the past years (2003 – 2006) in terms of appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency, and, to identify recommendations for future similar contexts. After presenting the first results, the evaluator was requested to extend the analysis of outcome data to those of the Niger nutrition program 2005 and 2006, for better comparison of results.
