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 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.

This evaluation was commissioned with the objective to enhance future operational performance by means of lessons learned from the intervention in Hajjah Governorate from 30 March to October 2017 in order to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by cholera outbreaks in similarly complex settings. Evaluation findings showed that the intervention contributed to reduce morbidity, mortality and human suffering, even though data collection was chaotic in the beginning.

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.

Since MSF’s return to Afghanistan in 2009, its operations on the ground have been monitored with a spyglass, unlike any other mission in this kind of environment. Consequently, OCs have been pushed to innovate but also remain critical vis-a-vis their respective strategies and the overall modus operandi of the Afghan mission. This evaluation of the single representation set up aims to analyse and learn from the current state of affairs of the Afghan mission in view of possible ways forward.

Integration of HIV/TB services is one of the priorities for the MSF movement since 2010 and in particular for OCBA that started hand over of the so-called vertical programs in the same year. This process has finished for the total of 16 vertical HIV programs of MSF-OCBA started since 2005. Integration aims to provide access to HIV/TB care to all populations in need in locations where MSF has implemented regular projects, regardless of the HIV prevalence in places such as CAR (started in 2008), South Sudan (2011) and Niger (2014).

This review was commissioned by the International Board of MSF to reflect on the lessons learned for Movement governance from the early months of the MSF response to the recent Ebola crisis in West Africa. It focuses on the first six months of the Ebola outbreak (from April to September 2014), and on Movement governance issues only. The findings are based on analysis of relevant records, minutes of platform meetings, and interviews with a cross-section of the key people involved in Movement governance during this period.
