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 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 formation of HAACO was initiated by Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) who had been operating a HIV/AIDS project since 1999 in Khayalitsha in the Western Cape and since 2003 in rural Lusikisiki in the Eastern Cape province. Most of the services provided by the MSF project were handed over to the DoH. However the adherence element was not. The DoH had neither the financial nor the structural capacity to take on the Adherence programme. Hence the formation of HAACO. This process was intended to review the strategic options for the future of HAACO.

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.

Following the handover of AIDS treatment programs to the authorities of Guatemala, MSF conducted a study to assess various aspects of the continuity of HIV/AIDS care. This review was conducted 18 months after MSF left the Roosevelt hospital, and examined both the clinical data and opinions of staff and patients. Despite some shortfalls in the frequency of laboratory testing and community follow up, the level of care and outcomes for the patients was well maintained by the hospital staff.

MSF closed all operations in Lusikisiki at the end of October 2006. That date marked the end of four years of operations setting up a model of comprehensive and decentralized HIV care in one of the poorest and most underserved rural areas in South Africa with a high prevalence of infection. The model implemented has been widely used in South Africa to influence relevant policies. This report looks at the chain of events following the handover and changes in the model of care.

MSF had been working in Honduras and Guatemala in HIV prevention and care of people living with HIV and AIDS for several years before ART projects were started in 2001. In 2005 the projects were handed over to the National AIDS Programme, though MSF-CH kept some staff in both countries to monitor progress. This evaluation was planned a year and a half after handing over the project, to document the perception of people regarding lessons learnt; whether the project was handed over properly; and the quality of care for people living HIV.

In September 2004, the Board of MSF-France decided to undertake a critique of the section’s operations in Darfur in 2003 and 2004. According to the terms of reference, the aim was less to ‘evaluate’ our intervention than to subject it to a critical examination which would enable us to “identify our weaknesses and the ways in which they can be corrected”. It addresses the following issues:

The political context toward HIV and AIDS in South Africa is particularly difficult with a government denying the seriousness of the epidemic, with a minister of health undermining confidence in HIV program, not supporting policy changes nor fully budgeting for HIV program, promoting beetroots, lemon and olive oil to treat AIDS. This paper examines the organisation of the project and the handover

This operational evaluation, requested by the Emergency Department of MSFOCB, concerns only the emergency response in Aceh in the first three months (from 26th Dec 2004). The report illustrates MSF intervention strategy, a description of implemented activities and draws lessons learned from the confronted challenges.

The evaluation describes an evolving approach to address the needs of traumatised internally displaced Indonesians. The evaluation focuses on how MSF responded to new insights documented in lessons learned and trip reports. The purpose of this is to inform a discussion of how to proceed with mental health in Indonesia, which will be formalised in the country policy.
