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


In 2009/2010 following the decentralisation of HIV care to primary health care in Maputo City, the former MSF-OCG Alto Maé day hospital was transformed into the chronic care HIV referral centre Centro de Referência Alto Maé (CRAM) with a double purpose: 1) to provide a safety net for the health centres of Chamanculo health area for the clinical management of complex HIV patients that do not require hospitalisation and 2) to reduce the workload of Maputo’s referral hospitals.

The OCB intervention in Maban started in 2011 and quickly grew to become the single largest intervention for 2012. Within this extremely challenging and rapidly developing context OCB deployed significant resources to meet the needs of the refugee population.

The report finds that the intervention was seen positively and the outputs highly appreciated by everybody involved.

The ambition to improve hospital care outcomes is a high priority in the MSF movement today. Over the past few years evaluations of hospital projects have been carried out by all the operational MSF sections at various points in time. The aim of this meta-review of 14 hospital evaluations is to highlight lessons learned and identify some of the major themes, which emerge for discussion.
