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.

Four years after the 2005 Niger crisis, many things have changed in the nutrition field. This cahier aims at considering this evolution and exploring new possibilities for action for MSF: how can these changes  get MSF to reconsider its own goals and move its areas of intervention? How can new knowledge and the experience gained by our teams since the crisis in Niger lead to new operational ambitions?

Through an analysis of the events that have marked MSF’s history since 2003, this series of case studies and historical accounts describes the evolution of MSF's humanitarian ambitions, the resistance to these ambitions and the political arrangements that overcame this resistance (or that failed to do so).

La chimio-prévention du paludisme saisonnier (CPS) a été mise en œuvre au Niger depuis 2013, conformément aux recommandations de l'Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) et à la politique nationale de lutte contre le paludisme. Elle se déroule sous la forme d’une campagne de masse qui consiste en l’administration de doses curatives de sulphadoxine-pyriméthamine (SP) et d'amodiaquine (AQ) durant trois jours, à 28 jours d’intervalle entre juillet et novembre, aux enfants de 3 à 59 mois.

Chemical prevention of seasonal malaria (CPS) has been implemented in Niger since 2013, pursuant to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the national anti-malaria policy. It consists of a mass campaign involving the administration of curative doses of sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) and amodiaquine (AQ) to children between the ages of 3 and 59 months for three days, at 28-day intervals, between July and November.

Given that community HIV testing is often more expensive than HF-based testing, this evaluation aims to fully understand the relative advantages of community testing modalities. MSF has been providing 3 modalities of community HIV testing in KZN since late 2012, to complement the standard, health facility (HF)-based testing provided by the Department of Health. Fixed sites (FS), Mobile 1-Stop Shops (M1SS) and Door-to-Door Community Health Agents (CHAPs) provide testing throughout the project area of Eshowe, Mbongolowane and the adjacent rural areas.

2015 saw the first large scale Meningitis C outbreak in Africa since 1979. A number of challenges and problems had been noted in the way MSF operational sections in Niger, not least in terms of intersectional collaboration. Some lessons from the 2015 response had been captured. When, at the beginning of 2016, all OCs were getting ready again to respond, it was decided to evaluate the 2016 intervention in real-time.

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

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 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.

SSP was formed in the aftermath of a high profile depot crisis in South Africa in 2012/3, with six organisations, already dealing with drug stock outs joining forces to tackle the issue. The different organisations brought different skills to the table. Largely focused on anti-retrovirals (ARVs) and TB medication, from the beginning the SSP has tasked itself to hold government accountable, to perform a watchdog role and to present the patient view on stock outs.
