Evaluation reports are either openly accessible via pdf download, or accessible via MSF's internal Sharepoint, which is mainly due to the sensitive nature of the operational contexts and resulting content. However, there are ongoing 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.

MSF-OCA has been addressing a highly relevant issue, TB and DR-TB in Uzbekistan. A steady decrease of the notification and the mortality rates has been indicating a good outcome of the TB DOTS programme. MSF is highly appreciated by the MOH of Uzbekistan as one of the main partners in TB control and the first one who started the diagnosis and treatment of DR-TB. The current model of comprehensive TB care was estimated as the most appropriate approach for this low-income country with high TB/MDR-TB burden. It could be successfully expanded to elsewhere in the region.

In Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world according to UNDP, Médecins Sans Frontières Belgium has been supporting MOH in the provision of HIV care since 1997 in Thyolo district, with provision of ART since 2003. MSF is looking to hand over program activities and phase out their presence. This external evaluation was commissioned with the overall objective of studying the perception of other stakeholders’ perception of the MSF support to Thyolo district health services.
