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.

Country/Region

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).

In February 2011, four MSF staff members acquired Lassa Fever in the MSF-run hospital, GRC (2 of whom died). This led OCB to propose an evaluation of the related events occurring in January-March, in order to learn lessons and possibly adjust internal procedures or processes. A qualitative evaluation was carried out through interviews and document-review.

MSF-OCA has been addressing a highly relevant issue, TB and DR-TB in Uzbekistan. A steady decrease of the notification and the mortality rates has been indicating a good outcome of the TB DOTS programme. MSF is highly appreciated by the MOH of Uzbekistan as one of the main partners in TB control and the first one who started the diagnosis and treatment of DR-TB. The current model of comprehensive TB care was estimated as the most appropriate approach for this low-income country with high TB/MDR-TB burden. It could be successfully expanded to elsewhere in the region.

The Gondama Referral Centre (GRC) project is a reference hospital set up by Médecins Sans Frontières – Operational Centre Brussels (MSF-OCB) to provide secondary level healthcare to children under 15 and pregnant and lactating women in Gondama, Bo district in Sierra Leone. The Ministry of Health (MoH) having recently launched a free healthcare policy for the same target group1 provides a window of opportunity for MSF to gradually hand over its activities.

The purpose of this evaluation was to review the experience in needs assessment and response to displacement in open settings. For the evaluation process, six interventions were reviewed: MSF Operational Centre Geneva (OCG) interventions in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) (Haut-Uélé), Djibouti, Cameroon and Iraq; Operational Centre Brussels (OCB) interventions in South Africa and Pakistan; and partial review of Operational Centre Paris (OCP) experience in Pakistan.

In September 2009, MSF carried out an assessment of two of its former projects in Karuzi (OCB) and Kinyinya (OCA), Burundi. These two projects were handed over to MOH in 2007 with significant investment from MSF in the handover processes. Following reports of the breakdown of healthcare after MSF’s departure and criticism on the way the handover of these two projects was managed, MSF wanted to assess the current situation in the two sites and document which, if any, handover strategies were successful and led to the continuation of MSF activities.

This evaluation is an end of project cycle evaluation. The main purposes, as with all evaluations in MSF-H, are learning and accountability. While the project was initiated with a three year time line, certain activities may continue for the coming two years. The conclusions and results of this evaluation will be used as a guide for future medical programming.
