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.

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).

The evaluation looks at the process for managing MSF-OCP's construction/rehabilitation projects since 2012. The main problems identified are not related to the process itself, but the way it is put into application. The main users pointed out the long delays (periods of indicision) as being the biggest difficulty, followed by budget/cost issues (cost/m² estimates) , and the quality of constructions (techniques, materials, etc). One of the root causes of delays relates to unclear/incomplete definition of roles and responsibilities = actions to take.

Family and Sexual Violence in PNG is pervasive and widespread, centered within the family and the extended family (wantok), and manifests itself as physical or emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and social isolation. There is also a stigma attached to young survivors making it difficult to report. The endemic nature and high rates of violence within the family impact women and children the most in PNG.

After an initial period of three years in Lesotho, MSF has decided to extend its presence in the country for two more years and to launch a second phase of the project primarily focused on intensifying the transfer of responsibility for the programme to local health authorities and partners. This is due partly to the administrative process now underway in Lesotho to decentralise to local government, coupled with related health sector reforms, which have divided the former catchment area of Scott Hospital Health Service Area into two districts with different management structures.

In recent years, MSF has recognized the need to improve its handover process and outcomes. It is no longer satisfactory for the organization to enter a country, put in place a program and leave without taking some accountability for what remains after MSF’s departure. It is in this spirit that I accepted to come to Lesotho to evaluate a handover tool that was implemented here during the initial phase of the handover.

This end of project evaluation of the Roma and Semongkong project “Reducing maternal and infant morbidity and mortality in a hyper-epidemic HIV/TB setting” in Lesotho was commissioned by the MSF Operational Centre Brussels (OCB) South Africa & Lesotho mission to evaluate the impact of the five years programme and identify lessons learned to support the design and planning of potential future projects in Lesotho.

This evaluation was conducted by Heidi Becher and Timothy McCann, on behalf of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit of MSF. This publication was produced at the request of MSF OCB, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by heidi Becher and Timothy McCann.

This document describes the project Lessons identified at the end of the market entry planning phase for MSF in Finland. It summarises the successes and challenges encountered during the project, lists the learning themes arising from these successes and challenges, and includes a set of lessons derived from an analysis of these learning points. The Annex contains a proposed (brief) framework with criteria and pre-requisites for a successful Market Entry Plan in MSF based on this experience. NOTE: This is not an evaluation and therefore there is no ambition for independent judgement.

This Retrospect was facilitated by the Stockholm Evaluation Unit on behalf of the Project Team. The report has been prepared by Timothy McCann.

The evaluation of National Emergency Pools MSF-OCP in Nigeria, DRC, and Chad, show variable investments and interest by missions. In certain cases there is a true added value that is recognised by teams prepared and backed up by MSF Coordinations and Paris HQs (with or without the E-desk intervention). After several years of functionning, a clearer frame has to be defined: follow up of carrier path, ad-hoc trainings, technical back up notably for emergency interventions. Periods away from emegencies should allow to improve the emergency response set ups with NEPs.

L'évaluation des Pool d'Urgence Nationaux MSF-OCP au Nigeria, en RDC, et au Tchad montre des investissements et des intérêts variables selon les missions. Dans certains cas il existe une véritable valeur ajoutée qui est reconnue avec des équipes préparées et épaulées par les Coordinations et le Siège de Paris (ceci avec ou sans intervention du Desk d'Urgence). Après plusieurs années de fonctionnement, un cadre mieux défini reste à établir : suivi de parcours, formations ad-hoc, appui technique en particulier lors d'interventions sur les urgences.
