This publication was produced at the request of MSF Intersectional Comms Pool, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Kristen Bègue.

 In May 2015, MSF launched an  intersectional pool management system for international field communication profiles and positions. The main rationale triggering the initiative was the difficulty to recruit and retain competent communication professionals for field positions, as well as the willingness to invest in field capacity and serve operations better.  This evaluation aims at capitalizing on lessons learned during the pilot phase as well as providing adequate information and recommendations to support decision-making regarding the way forward.
