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 www.insideOCB.com.

This report sets out the results of the evaluation of two emergency interventions: outbreak of malaria and measles epidemic, carried out by OCG in Orientale Province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo between June 2012 and July 2013. It is a retrospective evaluation that was done between March and May 2014, with the methodology based mainly on a review of documents and interviews with resource persons. Its objective was to capitalise on the lessons learned so as to improve preparation and response capacity for future epidemics in similar situations.

A series of failures was the starting point for this analysis. Several outbreaks of hepatitis E, transmitted via the water supply, occurred in refugee and IDP sites in the Sahel (Sudan in 2004, and Chad in 2007) and in central Africa (Central African Republic in 2002, and Uganda in 2007). MSF was responsible for all or part of the water supply, as well as medical care. These outbreaks are a reminder that significant infectious risks persists even after we implement our usual procedures.

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).

Between late 2010 and the end of 2014 and under extremely difficult conditions, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) carried out a project to combat Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), also known as sleeping sickness, in the Dingila, Ango and Zobia regions of Orientale Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). HAT in DRC is caused by Trypanosoma brucei gambiense and is transmitted by the tsetse fly (Glossina genus) of the Palpalis group. Without effective treatment, virtually all first-stage HAT patients and one hundred per cent of second-stage patients will die.

Entre fin 2010 et fin 2014, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) a, dans des conditions extrêmement difficiles, mené un projet de lutte contre la trypanosomiase humaine africaine (THA) ou maladie du sommeil dans la région de Dingila, Ango et Zobia, dans la Province Orientale de la République Démocratique du Congo (RDC). La THA en RDC est causée par Trypanosoma brucei gambiense et y est transmise par des glossines (mouches tsé-tsé) du groupe palpalis. Sans traitement efficace, quasi tous les malades au premier stade et cent pourcent de malades au deuxième stade de la THA meurent.

In recent years, MSF has recognised the need to improve its handover process and outcomes. It is no longer satisfactory for the organisation to enter a country, put in place a programme and leave without some degree of accountability for what remains after MSF’s departure. This tendency has led the MSF Operational Centre Paris (OCP) to review the handover process of the Homa Bay County Hospital project in Kenya. The main goal of this evaluation is to explore how effective the handover strategy was in contributing to sustainable, comprehensive quality of HIV/TB care in Homa Bay.

This publication was produced at the request of MSF OCP, under the management of the Vienna Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Marielle Bemelmans and Annie Désilets.

Despite a 5 day SIAs by MOH in 2014, a new outbreak began in Katanga/DRC and spread throughout 2015. A comprehensive, integrated “3 headed” response was chosen by MSF-OCG in 3 Health Zones (HZ) of Tanganyika, including preventive and curative activities (for measles, malaria, and malnutrition): although quite ambitious given available HR resources, this was relevant given these “three” on-going emergencies in Tanganyika.
