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.

Au cours des dernières années, MSF-OCG a élaboré une politique opérationnelle avec l'ambition d'augmenter et d'améliorer la quantité et la qualité des structures de soins secondaires (ou soins hospitaliers). Cette situation a incité MSF à examiner de plus près les défis, les enseignements et les réalisations en matière de gestion hospitalière afin d'élaborer des stratégies gagnantes pour le démarrage, l'opération et la fermeture de projets pour patients hospitalisés, dans tous les types de contextes.

In the last few years, MSF OCG has developed an Operational Policy with the ambition to increase and improve the quantity and quality of secondary health care structures (or inpatient care). This recognition has prompted the organization to take a closer look at the challenges, lessons and accomplishments in terms of hospital management to develop strategies that will enable the organization to successfully set up, govern, implement and exit inpatient projects in all types of contexts.

In late 2013 and early 2014, thousands of people fled the Central African Republic (CAR) to neighbouring Cameroon. MSF OCG provided health care to the refugee population in Garoua-Boulai and Gbiti, which was characterized by high mortality rates, malnutrition rates over twice the emergency threshold and an uncontrolled measles outbreak.

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).

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.

Variable experience with handover and internal debates about MSF responsibility to patients led OCG to propose an evaluation of the handover process, to learn from experience and inform policy and practice. A qualitative review was carried out through interviews, case studies in Cameroon and Laos, and review of other vertical and integrated HIV projects.

Médecins Sans Frontières has been running HIV/AIDS treatment programmes since 2001. As national systems scaled up capacity, MSF began to hand over HIV projects in 2005. Variable experience with handover and internal debates about MSF responsibility to patients led OCG to propose an evaluation of the handover process, to learn from experience and inform policy and practice. A qualitative review was carried out through interviews, case studies in Cameroon and Laos, and review of other vertical and integrated HIV projects.

In January 2006 the MSF-CH Meditrina was launched in Zürich with the objective to provide first-line medical assistance to people excluded from the Swiss health care system, primarily on the grounds of their illegal presence on Swiss territory. A team of the two evaluators reviewed documents, interviewed Meditrina team, beneficiaries, stakeholders and authorities, visited project sites.

The Meditrina project was initiated in January 2006 as a gate-keeping system based on the model of Frisanté in Fribourg. Meditrina had a low frequentation after one year. A pro-active strategy was then started. Ten months later, this mid-term evaluation is done in order to show the impact of the new strategy and to propose future orientation.
