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 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.

This evaluation assesses the results of the entire OCA Wardher project from 2008 – 2015, drawing lessons from this engagement, including on how to best engage in conflict prone and similar fragile context in the future. It is also an opportunity for MSF to reflect on this project for future interventions.

In October 2013 MSF developed a proposal for a new WHS strategy for meeting the medical humanitarian needs in large scale emergencies. In May 2015, the MSF Stockholm Evaluation Unit commissioned an evaluation of the 2013 MSF Operational Centre Amsterdam (OCA) strategy for a more offensive WHS approach. The evaluation focused on OCA interventions in South Sudan in Jaman, 2012, Bentui in 2014, CAR/Bossangoa and Bangui in 2014 and Ethiopia/Gambella in 2014. The period of evaluation was the first 3 months of the interventions.

In 2010 the operational prospects for OCB (strategic operational plan) outlined the broad objectives for the coming three years and placed renewed attention on key medical areas including surgery and emergency and acute medicine, bringing about increased investment in two hospital programs where OCB focussed on providing emergency surgical care in third level facilities in Tabarre and Kunduz.

This evaluation of MSF OCP concerns the review of MSF-OCP's emergency intervention for South-Sudanese refugees in Ethiopia, early 2014 (part of an intentional global review of MSF response to crises with major population Displacement - decision IB/5 DG, 2014). Here in Gambella, the response to well-known 11 priorities/refugee needs is checked out systematically - while the initial reactivity is fair, there are some limitations concerning know how in key operational domains (cf details in report).

Cette évaluation de MSF-OCP concerne la revue critique de l’intervention MSF en urgence pour les réfugiés sud-soudanais en Ethiopie, début 2014 (partie de l’intention d’une revue globale des réponses MSF aux crises avec déplacements massifs de pop°– décision du BI/5 DG MSF, 2014). Ici à Gambella, la réponse aux 11 priorités connues / besoins des réfugiés est vérifiée systématiquement – alors que la réactivité initiale est satisfaisante, il existe une certaine perte de savoir-faire dans des domaines opérationnels majeurs (cf détails dans le rapport).

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).

Zahedan Project for Afghan refugees in Iran : 1st a necessary historical review; and an analysis of the political and technical relevance of the project (10 years). MSF could have proposed earlier health activities directly oriented for local Iraniens. The adequacy of means related to project objectives is considered satisfactory.
