Some evaluation reports are public and can be downloaded from this website, while others are restricted to MSF users and can only be accessed via Tukul. This limitation is mainly due to the sensitive nature of the operational contexts and the resulting content. However, there are internal 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.

This report is a review of advocacy within the MSF movement from 2010-2015. Commissioned by the core ExCom, the aim of this review was to explore the effectiveness of MSF advocacy and produce recommendations to improve its approach, coordination and organization in support to operations within the movement. Two external evaluation consultants, Glenn O’Neil and Liesbeth Schockaert, conducted the review with the support of Nirupama Sarma who carried out a complementary review of the Access Campaign (AC).

This evaluation assesses the results of the entire OCA Wardher project from 2008 – 2015, drawing lessons from this engagement, including on how to best engage in conflict prone and similar fragile context in the future. It is also an opportunity for MSF to reflect on this project for future interventions.

Full version and short version available. This evaluation of the viral load (VL) monitoring system was commissioned in order to more fully understand the experience and outcomes of the introduction and scale-up of VL in one district of Zimbabwe but also undertaken with a view to the national scale-up of VL monitoring, and the general issue of VL monitoring in sub-Saharan Africa in light of the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets. The report details five clear recommendations to reach undetectable viral load.

In recent years, MSF has noted that ‘social violence’ is strongly linked to health exclusion and dysfunctional health systems. Therefore, the Operational Centre Geneva (OCG) initiated an intervention in Honduras in 2010 and a project in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico in January 2014. The current evaluation aims to determine the pertinence, appropriateness, effectiveness and impact of the OCG projects in Honduras and Mexico in responding to identified needs.

In October 2013 MSF developed a proposal for a new WHS strategy for meeting the medical humanitarian needs in large scale emergencies. In May 2015, the MSF Stockholm Evaluation Unit commissioned an evaluation of the 2013 MSF Operational Centre Amsterdam (OCA) strategy for a more offensive WHS approach. The evaluation focused on OCA interventions in South Sudan in Jaman, 2012, Bentui in 2014, CAR/Bossangoa and Bangui in 2014 and Ethiopia/Gambella in 2014. The period of evaluation was the first 3 months of the interventions.

This evaluation of MSF OCP concerns the review of MSF-OCP's emergency intervention for South-Sudanese refugees in Ethiopia, early 2014 (part of an intentional global review of MSF response to crises with major population Displacement - decision IB/5 DG, 2014). Here in Gambella, the response to well-known 11 priorities/refugee needs is checked out systematically - while the initial reactivity is fair, there are some limitations concerning know how in key operational domains (cf details in report).

Cette évaluation de MSF-OCP concerne la revue critique de l’intervention MSF en urgence pour les réfugiés sud-soudanais en Ethiopie, début 2014 (partie de l’intention d’une revue globale des réponses MSF aux crises avec déplacements massifs de pop°– décision du BI/5 DG MSF, 2014). Ici à Gambella, la réponse aux 11 priorités connues / besoins des réfugiés est vérifiée systématiquement – alors que la réactivité initiale est satisfaisante, il existe une certaine perte de savoir-faire dans des domaines opérationnels majeurs (cf détails dans le rapport).

The Ebola Workshop in Dakar, held over 3 days in June 2015, brought together experienced Ebola field people and HQ staff from diverse specialties and all MSF sections to reflect on lessons learned so far and make recommendations in the areas of outreach response, patient care, human resources and strategy. Participants placed a high value on intersectional approaches within MSF, and on strong engagement with key external organizations in preparing flexible, adapted, more effective responses to future outbreaks of Ebola or other mass epidemics.
