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 CAR, MSF’s medical presence finds itself unprecedentedly in the midst of a health desert. MSF intervenes in CAR to provide access to health to populations affected by the conflict in the North. Within this context, 3 MSF sections (MSF-OCBA, OCA, OCP) in CAR since 2006 requested an evaluation of their hospital-based projects. This work involves the comparison of the three projects (hospital + outreach activities) and the analysis of factors in the face of a potential handover to the MoH or other actors present in the area.

The analysis shows a still fragile equilibrium for several components of these projects: HR, Quality Standards expected, possibilities of integration in RCA etc. Before imagining handover scenarios with the MOH and/or others actors, MSF needs to take a longer term view and define carefully the steps.

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).

Since civil unrest and violence erupted in countries across Northern Africa and the Middle East (referred as NAME in the document) teams from the five MSF OCs (Operational Centres) have been assisting the populations. OCB has mainly been active in Egypt, Bahrain, Libya and Italy (Lampedusa with the influx of migrants from the Northern African regions). Activities and challenges have varied from one context to another. The overall aim of the mapping/compilation is to describe all of OCB’s activities from January to August 2011, in relation to the unrests.

The review analyses the timeliness and relevance of MSF emergency response, taking into account local actors and environment in Japan. Despite a good reactivity and explorations in remote areas affected (relevant), MSF actions can gain in efficiency (E-Prep, list of contacts, better knowledge of national strategies, etc). Capitalisation on Nuclear risks remains an issue to consider seriously.
