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.

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.

MSF is one of the pioneering organisations to implement HIV & AIDS related interventions including ART in different settings. Understandably, the organisation is thus often solicited to provide information on cost analysis of programs. This is the purpose of this study into 3 different MSF HIV/AIDS programs: Kenya, DRC and Malawi. The present study proposes a detailed description of the cost for the HIV/AIDS program in Thyolo in Malawi for the period of time from 2005 to 2007. The methodology used is inspired by the “Activity based costing” (ABC approach)

MSF's HIV/AIDS project in Thyolo district, Malawi was one of the MSF movement's earliest efforts to address HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, beginning in 1997. The handover of project responsibilities from MSF Luxembourg to MSF Belgium took place in 2005. MSF Belgium agreed to undertake this external evaluation of the project with the goal of assessing the project's performance, identifying constraints preventing the achievement of its goals, and proposing recommendations to improve overall effectiveness.

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.

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.

This evaluation is best understood as a peer review aimed at learning from the experiences of 3 different sections of MSF operating HIV/AIDS programmes in Malawi. Our aim was to evaluate how specific differences in objectives might impact on programme strategies and whether these differences would be relevant when assessing programme outcomes. The general issues of interest were decentralisation, simplification and task shifting in relation to the expansion of ART services.

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.

MSF-CH did rehabilitate the Mundari hospital in Kajo Keji County (KKC) and did support the existing OPD from September 1997 onward. Environmental- and political factors and an estimated high HIV prevalence did lead to the decision to implement the first time an integrated HIV/AIDS component (2005). Towards the end of the project it was decided that the handover process, as well as the HIV integrated approach and the capacity build during the last 9 years of presence in KKC should be evaluated.

2005 was marked by two major natural calamities, the tsunami waves in South East Asia and the earthquake in Kashmir, Pakistan. Both of them were followed by a large intervention of MSF. After the initial assessment, MSF Belgium concentrated his efforts on the district of Bagh. The report will focus on the first 3 months of the intervention. As only a few documents are available, it was requested to reconstitute a chronology of intervention. Secondly, when there was time available, a short description and appreciation of the interventions of the other MSF sections was asked.

French report. MSF restarted the activities of the General Reference Hospital in Man in 2003 in order to deliver primary and secondary health care. As well as providing medcidines and medical/surgical material, MSF also provided medical, para-medical, and HR staff to support the hospital. A therapeutic nutrition centre was also opened. MSF also managed 2 other regional hospitals. This evaluation examined the effectiveness and appropriateness of the services provided by MSF.
