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 evaluation was to compare the substitutional approach in Gety project to the approach focused on capacity building and skills transfer in Boga. The evaluation found that in both Boga and Gety, MSF succeeded to considerably improve the quality of care during its presence. Access to health care in Gety was arguably better according to the perception of the population. In Boga, access to primary health care remained limited up until the start of the community-based health care programme launched towards the end of the project.

In Chad, MSF-OCA strategy of long-term projects and rapid responses to emergencies negatively impacted the standard decentralised supply approach; leading to supply constraints and sub-optimal supply quality standard. To tackle the issue, MSF-OCA Chad mission started to implement a centrally managed unallocated inventory strategy in early-2013.

Through this evaluation, MSF-OCA seeks to appraise how the inventory management outside the standard norm has benefited a mission like Chad, as well as reflecting on its original intended purpose, and its potential replicability.

This document describes the project Lessons identified at the end of the market entry planning phase for MSF in Finland. It summarises the successes and challenges encountered during the project, lists the learning themes arising from these successes and challenges, and includes a set of lessons derived from an analysis of these learning points. The Annex contains a proposed (brief) framework with criteria and pre-requisites for a successful Market Entry Plan in MSF based on this experience. NOTE: This is not an evaluation and therefore there is no ambition for independent judgement.

This Retrospect was facilitated by the Stockholm Evaluation Unit on behalf of the Project Team. The report has been prepared by Timothy McCann.

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.

Bikenge project was opened in Jan 2015, and medical activities starting on Mar 2015. Six months later, in October 2015, the decision was made to close the project. This was followed by a feeling of frustration, the impression that invested resources were wasted and that this closure could negatively impact on the population and MSF perception.This evaluation looks at the process of decision making for starting the project with the goal to identify the lessons to be used by operations in order to avoid similar situations in the future.
