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.

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).

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.

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).

Cyclone Nargis was a strong tropical cyclone that caused the worst natural disaster in the recorded history of Myanmar. An MSF intervention started 72 hours after the disaster with two teams, one in Bogalay and one in Pyapon. Due to political restrictions the real operational activities only started 10 days after. MSF-CH wanted to capture the lessons learned out of this major response that was considered a successful intervention.

In September 2004, the Board of MSF-France decided to undertake a critique of the section’s operations in Darfur in 2003 and 2004. According to the terms of reference, the aim was less to ‘evaluate’ our intervention than to subject it to a critical examination which would enable us to “identify our weaknesses and the ways in which they can be corrected”. It addresses the following issues:
