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.

OCBA commenced a new mental health intervention in the city of Buenaventura in February 2015 with the aim to support victims of violence. The project was set up to demonstrate an innovative approach with two principle elements: a) a focus on a mass media campaign as the main means of communication, and b) a provision of therapeutic sessions on the phone.

The hand over of MSF-F Phnom Penh HIV project is a complex process. This HIV cohort is the biggest of MSF OCP to be handed over so far and the hand over is almost directly done to the national health authorities, NGO partners having been identified only for minor parts of the project. In the first part of the report, a narrative description and an evaluation of the main technical aspects of the handover process are presented.

This evaluation was requested by MSF CH Geneva and focuses on the pertinence, efficacy and impact of the sexual violence project in Guatemala. The motivation to evaluate this program stemmed from difficulties at the initial stages of the project in realizing the goals through the original strategies chosen. The results answer key questions about the added value of the intervention regarding the problem of the sexual violence (SV).

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.
