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 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.

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.

Since MSF’s return to Afghanistan in 2009, its operations on the ground have been monitored with a spyglass, unlike any other mission in this kind of environment. Consequently, OCs have been pushed to innovate but also remain critical vis-a-vis their respective strategies and the overall modus operandi of the Afghan mission. This evaluation of the single representation set up aims to analyse and learn from the current state of affairs of the Afghan mission in view of possible ways forward.

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).

Full version and short version available. This evaluation of the viral load (VL) monitoring system was commissioned in order to more fully understand the experience and outcomes of the introduction and scale-up of VL in one district of Zimbabwe but also undertaken with a view to the national scale-up of VL monitoring, and the general issue of VL monitoring in sub-Saharan Africa in light of the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets. The report details five clear recommendations to reach undetectable viral load.

In 2010 the operational prospects for OCB (strategic operational plan) outlined the broad objectives for the coming three years and placed renewed attention on key medical areas including surgery and emergency and acute medicine, bringing about increased investment in two hospital programs where OCB focussed on providing emergency surgical care in third level facilities in Tabarre and Kunduz.

This evaluation is of the MSF Belgium Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) project in Mbare, Harare, Zimbabwe (2011-2014). It is not a comprehensive evaluation of the whole project, but an evaluation of selected strategies/components. The selected strategies/components for analysis are: ‘nurse-based care’, ‘decentralization’, the ‘72 hour strategy’, the work to ‘raise the profile of rape and the need for medical care’ and the ‘social work’.
