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.

The objective of this lessons learnt exercise was to assess the advantages and disadvantages of the UNITAID grant governance and management model for project achievements in terms of medical (and related) outcomes, strategic decisions, the potential for collaboration between multiple MSF entities and to leverage the learnings for replication in future projects. The exercise showed that the project directly delivered a new, more effective, simpler and much cheaper treatment to patients across seven countries.

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).

The purpose of this evaluation was to review the experience in needs assessment and response to displacement in open settings. For the evaluation process, six interventions were reviewed: MSF Operational Centre Geneva (OCG) interventions in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) (Haut-Uélé), Djibouti, Cameroon and Iraq; Operational Centre Brussels (OCB) interventions in South Africa and Pakistan; and partial review of Operational Centre Paris (OCP) experience in Pakistan.

Cyclone Nargis was a strong tropical cyclone that caused the worst natural disaster in the recorded history of Myanmar. An MSF intervention started 72 hours after the disaster with two teams, one in Bogalay and one in Pyapon. Due to political restrictions the real operational activities only started 10 days after. MSF-CH wanted to capture the lessons learned out of this major response that was considered a successful intervention.

The evaluation describes an evolving approach to address the needs of traumatised internally displaced Indonesians. The evaluation focuses on how MSF responded to new insights documented in lessons learned and trip reports. The purpose of this is to inform a discussion of how to proceed with mental health in Indonesia, which will be formalised in the country policy.

The Bosnia programme was one of the largest programmes MSF has implemented so far, and it was the first major operation MSF executed in an European environment. There was a widely shared view that the programme had gone “out of control”. As a result, many within MSF considered drug distribution in general as being beyond the scope of MSF. The dominance of drug distribution in the programme was perceived to be in contradiction with the medical identity of MSF.
