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.

Despite a 5 day SIAs by MOH in 2014, a new outbreak began in Katanga/DRC and spread throughout 2015. A comprehensive, integrated “3 headed” response was chosen by MSF-OCG in 3 Health Zones (HZ) of Tanganyika, including preventive and curative activities (for measles, malaria, and malnutrition): although quite ambitious given available HR resources, this was relevant given these “three” on-going emergencies in Tanganyika.

Measles epidemics occur in Katanga (KTA)/DRC, challenging early response strategies for outbreak control. In 2015, despite MOH delay in declaring the epidemic, OCP present in KTA, showed good reactivity in 5 Health Zones (HZ) of Ht Lomami with a so called “vertical” response (focused on measles: vaccination and case management). However, malaria and malnutrition should have been better considered (OCG chose a “3 diseases strategy”). The 6 to 8 weeks long vaccination campaigns were efficient as the ZS outbreaks stopped after a few weeks.

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.

Between late 2010 and the end of 2014 and under extremely difficult conditions, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) carried out a project to combat Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), also known as sleeping sickness, in the Dingila, Ango and Zobia regions of Orientale Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). HAT in DRC is caused by Trypanosoma brucei gambiense and is transmitted by the tsetse fly (Glossina genus) of the Palpalis group. Without effective treatment, virtually all first-stage HAT patients and one hundred per cent of second-stage patients will die.

Entre fin 2010 et fin 2014, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) a, dans des conditions extrêmement difficiles, mené un projet de lutte contre la trypanosomiase humaine africaine (THA) ou maladie du sommeil dans la région de Dingila, Ango et Zobia, dans la Province Orientale de la République Démocratique du Congo (RDC). La THA en RDC est causée par Trypanosoma brucei gambiense et y est transmise par des glossines (mouches tsé-tsé) du groupe palpalis. Sans traitement efficace, quasi tous les malades au premier stade et cent pourcent de malades au deuxième stade de la THA meurent.
