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.

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.

Towards the end of 2006/ early 2007, MSF-OCB opened a primary health care project in Chhattisgarh, India, part of the Red Corridor within which a low-intensity conflict is taking place between Maoists and Government. The situation remains volatile with potential for the project to remain operational for some years. Within this context, and given no history of previous evaluations, a decision was taken to assess the relevance and impact of the project, as well as the appropriateness of operational strategies in relation to these, including the potential for phase out.

This evaluation is an end of project cycle evaluation. The main purposes, as with all evaluations in MSF-H, are learning and accountability. While the project was initiated with a three year time line, certain activities may continue for the coming two years. The conclusions and results of this evaluation will be used as a guide for future medical programming.

The objective of this lessons learnt exercise was to assess the advantages and disadvantages of the UNITAID grant governance and management model for project achievements in terms of medical (and related) outcomes, strategic decisions, the potential for collaboration between multiple MSF entities and to leverage the learnings for replication in future projects. The exercise showed that the project directly delivered a new, more effective, simpler and much cheaper treatment to patients across seven countries.

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.

In the last decade, while facing increasingly complex “projects”, MSF-OCP has chosen to add means to improve its interventions. This results in the actual growth syndrome of MSF-OCP HQ departments, which is also significantly impacting country coordination (CC) set-ups and means. New scenarios should be tested, notably for mono-projects (to revise), the idea being to reduce CC set-ups whenever possible. Resources' analyses highlight the importance of competent persons to follow (coordinators & key positions), including PCs, with a clearer career path.
