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



This evaluation contributes to the debate around the OCB Martissant intervention following the proposed closure and resulting decision to scale down in 2013. The report concludes that the context remains similar to that of the beginning therefore the intervention is still as relevant as it was in 2006 however the evaluation questions the suitability of OCB's country wide strategy in Haiti, urging a focus towards the most vulnerable and marginalised urban populations, rather than towards the general needs of the population.

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.

The OCB intervention in Maban started in 2011 and quickly grew to become the single largest intervention for 2012. Within this extremely challenging and rapidly developing context OCB deployed significant resources to meet the needs of the refugee population. The evaluation looks at the first months of the intervention between the time of the initial assessment and the handover to the emergency desk at the height of the emergency. The report finds that the intervention was seen positively and the outputs highly appreciated by everybody involved.

Given the health needs, the relevance of MSF-OCP intervention in Yida refugee camp (60 000) makes no doubts. Analyses highlight reasons for the delay in scaling up the project in emergency phase, April to August 2012 : if at the end, efficacy/efficiency of operations were ensured, lessosn must be drawn from this intervention. Omitting to set up a surveillance system and refusing to engage in non-medical activities constituted strategic failures.

MSF-OCG has been working in South Sudan since 1997; in the area of Abyei since 2006. Due to context changes, MSF had to adapt its medical strategy significantly over the years. This evaluation of project relevance and effectiveness aimed at informing the future strategy. It used a comprehensive cross-sector approach (multidisciplinary) with direct participation of the MSF actors involved in the Agok project at all levels.

This report summarises the key lessons learned from MSF's cholera interventions in Zambia 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 (OCBA), Guinea Bissau 2005-2008 (OCBA), Juba 2006 (OCBA), Haiti 2010-2011 (OCBA), Angola 2006 (OCB, OCA, OCBA), Zimbabwe 2009 (OCB, OCA, OCBA)

After the 12 January 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, 4 MSF sections (OCG, OCA, OCP and OCB) decided to build container hospitals to respond to the health care needs (including Léogâne). All of these prefabricated structures, though varying in quality, were unique in that they were partially or completely built from modular containers (with different architectural designs). Construction was done by subcontractors, MSF teams trained in construction, or a combination of the two.
