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.

It has been five years since MSF-OCB´s first concrete actions on torture and three years since the launch of the torture rehabilitations projects. Sufficient time has now elapsed to evaluate MSF´s trio of clinics and to make recommendations for their improvement, as well as to identify cross-cutting lessons applicable to future efforts in similar contexts. This is especially important as the clinics represent the first experiences for MSF in the specialized rehabilitation of victims.

Prior to 2012, MSF did not run vertical projects for Victims of Torture (VoT), although treatment has been given in many countries for a long time. This evaluation reports findings from a multivariable evaluation of all vertical projects offering treatment and rehabilitation services to victims of torture. It covers four locations – with the emphasis at the level of activities and outcomes in offering services to VoT. By looking at four projects transversally, the evaluation identified recommendations and proposes changes as well as lessons learned to be transferred.
