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 MSF Sweden Innovation Unit (SIU) aims to promote innovations that help save lives and alleviate suffering, and to develop a culture of innovation within MSF. Since its initial creation in 2012, the SIU has gone  through a rapid period of development. It has been transformed from a project into a separate unit with activities having become more structured and professional, and the number of innovation initiatives and projects increasing along with the unit size.

This publication was produced at the request of the Sweden Innovation Unit, MSF Sweden, under the management of the Vienna Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Patrick Robitaille and Chris Houston.

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.

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.

Since civil unrest and violence erupted in countries across Northern Africa and the Middle East (referred as NAME in the document) teams from the five MSF OCs (Operational Centres) have been assisting the populations. OCB has mainly been active in Egypt, Bahrain, Libya and Italy (Lampedusa with the influx of migrants from the Northern African regions). Activities and challenges have varied from one context to another. The overall aim of the mapping/compilation is to describe all of OCB’s activities from January to August 2011, in relation to the unrests.

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.
