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.

In recent years, MSF has recognized the need to improve its handover process and outcomes. It is no longer satisfactory for the organization to enter a country, put in place a program and leave without taking some accountability for what remains after MSF’s departure. It is in this spirit that I accepted to come to Lesotho to evaluate a handover tool that was implemented here during the initial phase of the handover.

This evaluation finds project performance to be highly satisfactory and identifies some critical obstacles relating to the continuity of care. The capacity of the local partners to continue with the implementation of the strategic framework for the fight against HIV/ Aids and TB when MSF departs is severely compromised. The report urges MSF to place more emphasis on identifying a feasible partner for handover before engaging as a leader in such contexts.

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.

MSF-CH did rehabilitate the Mundari hospital in Kajo Keji County (KKC) and did support the existing OPD from September 1997 onward. Environmental- and political factors and an estimated high HIV prevalence did lead to the decision to implement the first time an integrated HIV/AIDS component (2005). Towards the end of the project it was decided that the handover process, as well as the HIV integrated approach and the capacity build during the last 9 years of presence in KKC should be evaluated.

This evaluation aims at assessing the Bili project in DRC, since its start in July 2017 until its closure in November 2019. The evaluation focuses on reviewing the project relevance and appropriateness, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability, with a special attention to community case management of malaria (CCMm) or integrated Community Case management (iCCM) to the extent it has been implemented. It seeks to analyse achievements and challenges and to document lessons learned.
