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.

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.

During the 2014-2015 Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa, MSF built a number of Ebola Treatment Centres (ETCs). MSF set up centres in the three countries at different moments and with different MSF Operational Sections, which resulted in a heterogenic collection of solutions. This review was conducted jointly for all MSF operational centers (OCs). It was commissioned by OCA and was conducted as part of the OCB Ebola review. 

This publication was produced at the request of MSF OCA coordinated within a broader review on OCB's response to the Ebola emergency, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Veronica Sanchez Carrera.

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.

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.

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.

In 2009/2010 following the decentralisation of HIV care to primary health care in Maputo City, the former MSF-OCG Alto Maé day hospital was transformed into the chronic care HIV referral centre Centro de Referência Alto Maé (CRAM) with a double purpose: 1) to provide a safety net for the health centres of Chamanculo health area for the clinical management of complex HIV patients that do not require hospitalisation and 2) to reduce the workload of Maputo’s referral hospitals.

This evaluation was conducted by Eric Goemaere and Heidi Becher on behalf of the Vienna Evaluation Unit.

The evaluation looks at how MSF-OCB support in Mavalane is percieved by stakeholders and gives orientation to the planing for handover of 1st line support activities. The evaluation identifies the important role MSF plays in HIV programming in Mozambique; MSF comes out strongly as an advocate, a technical partner and a motor for change.

This evaluation aimed at gaining perspective on and learning from current partnership practices, informing the debate on MSF’s policy on partnerships and providing guidance for future engagement. Four separate field evaluations in DRC, Kenya, Niger and North Korea as well as a desk review of seven additional partnerships have been conducted. The report provides good practice examples and practical recommendations.
