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.

Since 2014, MSF has been implementing health programs for key populations (KP) mainly along a major transport corridor running through Mozambique and Malawi.

This evaluation was conceived to evaluate each program individually, and then to look at all programs comparatively in order to discern which interventions were most effective. Furthermore, the intention was to consider the sum of the MSF experience in these programs to infer an optimal model of care that responds best to the health needs.

 

This evaluation was conducted by Richard Bedell & Victoria Bungay under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit of MSF. Finalized in December 2018.

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.

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.

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 2015 MSF-OCB launched a review to assess the perception, by the field teams, of an increased organisational “bureaucratic” burden. The review spanned three phases, from problem identification, to an in depth field study, to a final phase of webinars to improve the coverage and overall accuracy of the findings. The review process culminated in 2 missions agreeing to pilot a new monitoring and reporting system based on the principles coming out of the review, starting asap.

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 recent years, MSF has noted that ‘social violence’ is strongly linked to health exclusion and dysfunctional health systems. Therefore, the Operational Centre Geneva (OCG) initiated an intervention in Honduras in 2010 and a project in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico in January 2014. The current evaluation aims to determine the pertinence, appropriateness, effectiveness and impact of the OCG projects in Honduras and Mexico in responding to identified needs.
