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 evaluation of the MSF OCB Maputo HIV/Aids Project aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the implementation phases of the MoH handover and related consequences to the continuity of patient care, and with the added objective to make clear recommendations towards improvements and replicability of the handover ‘tool’ itself.

Towards the end of 2006/ early 2007, MSF-OCB opened a primary health care project in Chhattisgarh, India, part of the Red Corridor within which a low-intensity conflict is taking place between Maoists and Government. The situation remains volatile with potential for the project to remain operational for some years. Within this context, and given no history of previous evaluations, a decision was taken to assess the relevance and impact of the project, as well as the appropriateness of operational strategies in relation to these, including the potential for phase out.

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.

Médecins Sans Frontières has been running HIV/AIDS treatment programmes since 2001. As national systems scaled up capacity, MSF began to hand over HIV projects in 2005. Variable experience with handover and internal debates about MSF responsibility to patients led OCG to propose an evaluation of the handover process, to learn from experience and inform policy and practice. A qualitative review was carried out through interviews, case studies in Cameroon and Laos, and review of other vertical and integrated HIV projects.

MSF had been working in Honduras and Guatemala in HIV prevention and care of people living with HIV and AIDS for several years before ART projects were started in 2001. In 2005 the projects were handed over to the National AIDS Programme, though MSF-CH kept some staff in both countries to monitor progress. This evaluation was planned a year and a half after handing over the project, to document the perception of people regarding lessons learnt; whether the project was handed over properly; and the quality of care for people living HIV.

The project in Lichinga is a vertical program addressing HIV/Aids in one of the northern provinces of Mozambique. The approach of integrating activities in the existing health services is rather new, hence it was felt important to evaluate the current strategy in order to support future planning and draw lessons. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess whether the integration and decentralization strategies are appropriate and efficient in order to reach to overall objective of the project. The evaluation was carried out between Mid May and Mid June 2005, by two evaluators.
