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 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.

SSP was formed in the aftermath of a high profile depot crisis in South Africa in 2012/3, with six organisations, already dealing with drug stock outs joining forces to tackle the issue. The different organisations brought different skills to the table. Largely focused on anti-retrovirals (ARVs) and TB medication, from the beginning the SSP has tasked itself to hold government accountable, to perform a watchdog role and to present the patient view on stock outs.

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).

Given that community HIV testing is often more expensive than HF-based testing, this evaluation aims to fully understand the relative advantages of community testing modalities. MSF has been providing 3 modalities of community HIV testing in KZN since late 2012, to complement the standard, health facility (HF)-based testing provided by the Department of Health. Fixed sites (FS), Mobile 1-Stop Shops (M1SS) and Door-to-Door Community Health Agents (CHAPs) provide testing throughout the project area of Eshowe, Mbongolowane and the adjacent rural areas.

The Ebola Workshop in Dakar, held over 3 days in June 2015, brought together experienced Ebola field people and HQ staff from diverse specialties and all MSF sections to reflect on lessons learned so far and make recommendations in the areas of outreach response, patient care, human resources and strategy. Participants placed a high value on intersectional approaches within MSF, and on strong engagement with key external organizations in preparing flexible, adapted, more effective responses to future outbreaks of Ebola or other mass epidemics.

This report describes the OCB Khayelitsha Project, initiated in 2000, as one of the first MSF projects in Africa to introduce antiretroviral treatment (ART) into the public sector. Currently implementing HIV and tuberculosis (TB) programs, it has produced dozens of very well-received publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals, in large part because of its innovative strategies, major investment in a locally driven monitoring and evaluation system, and a long-standing collaboration with the University of Cape Town (UCT), civil society and local health authorities.
