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.

This report is a review of advocacy within the MSF movement from 2010-2015. Commissioned by the core ExCom, the aim of this review was to explore the effectiveness of MSF advocacy and produce recommendations to improve its approach, coordination and organization in support to operations within the movement. Two external evaluation consultants, Glenn O’Neil and Liesbeth Schockaert, conducted the review with the support of Nirupama Sarma who carried out a complementary review of the Access Campaign (AC).

MSF has received UNITAID grants since 2013. For several financial, operational and opportunistic reasons, the opportunity and adequacy of receiving funds from UNITAID was questioned by the MSF medical and operational directors. In October 2014 the MedOp platform took a decision not to seek any further UNITAID funding for a one-year period-ending in October 2015.

This evaluation was conducted by Nicole Henze on behalf of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit of MSF. Finalised in November 2015. This publication was produced at the request of MSF MedOp, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Nicole Henze.

The example of Shishelweni demonstrates that in the context of high prevalence of HIV/TB infections and limited resources available decentralisation of HIV and TB care from regional and district hospitals to primary health care clinics and community level is the way to improve access, coverage, effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery. It also improves satisfaction and acceptance of health service providers, direct beneficiaries and the wider community.

In September 2009, MSF carried out an assessment of two of its former projects in Karuzi (OCB) and Kinyinya (OCA), Burundi. These two projects were handed over to MOH in 2007 with significant investment from MSF in the handover processes. Following reports of the breakdown of healthcare after MSF’s departure and criticism on the way the handover of these two projects was managed, MSF wanted to assess the current situation in the two sites and document which, if any, handover strategies were successful and led to the continuation of MSF activities.

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.
