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 document describes the project Lessons identified at the end of the market entry planning phase for MSF in Finland. It summarises the successes and challenges encountered during the project, lists the learning themes arising from these successes and challenges, and includes a set of lessons derived from an analysis of these learning points. The Annex contains a proposed (brief) framework with criteria and pre-requisites for a successful Market Entry Plan in MSF based on this experience. NOTE: This is not an evaluation and therefore there is no ambition for independent judgement.

This Retrospect was facilitated by the Stockholm Evaluation Unit on behalf of the Project Team. The report has been prepared by Timothy McCann.

A series of failures was the starting point for this analysis. Several outbreaks of hepatitis E, transmitted via the water supply, occurred in refugee and IDP sites in the Sahel (Sudan in 2004, and Chad in 2007) and in central Africa (Central African Republic in 2002, and Uganda in 2007). MSF was responsible for all or part of the water supply, as well as medical care. These outbreaks are a reminder that significant infectious risks persists even after we implement our usual procedures.

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).

MSF has been present in the Nchelenge region since 1998, when a program was started to provide health care to Angolan and Congolese refugees who had arrived in the region. The MSF project in Nchelenge District was started in April 2001 because of lack of access to HIV/AIDS care in an area with an HIV prevalence estimated at 16.5%. The objective was to achieve a high coverage of treatment and care, and at the same time provide a model for decentralised programs to bring HIV/AIDS treatment and care to all people in Zambia and for MSF Holland/OCA more widely.

MSF-CH has been working in Gulu since 2003, supporting different health structures and running a shelter for “night commuters”. This evaluation was initiated by the desk, mainly because the progress of this project was slow and there were doubts whether it addresses real needs. Hence the general objective of the evaluation was to review the intervention in Gulu and determine its Relevance, Effectiveness and Efficiency. In addition Perception, Co-ordination and Exit strategies were looked at. The evaluation was carried out between September and October 2005.

The objective of the report is to learn how effective MSF's mental health intervention is, from a beneficiary perspective; to determine how effective the overall strategy/approach used by MSF was, in responding to the psychosocial needs identified in the target community.
