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 Ebola Workshop in Dakar, held over 3 days in June 2015, brought together experienced Ebola field people and HQ staff from diverse specialties and all MSF sections to reflect on lessons learned so far and make recommendations in the areas of outreach response, patient care, human resources and strategy. Participants placed a high value on intersectional approaches within MSF, and on strong engagement with key external organizations in preparing flexible, adapted, more effective responses to future outbreaks of Ebola or other mass epidemics.

This is a comprehensive evaluation of OCA's in country emergency response units in Nigeria, Chad, North Kivu, South Kivu and Katanga. The report consists of the transversal analysis of all of the ERUs as well as the individual evaluations of each specific ERU project. The outcomes have been reduced into Management Summary Charts found on p.8 of the report.

In the last decade, while facing increasingly complex “projects”, MSF-OCP has chosen to add means to improve its interventions. This results in the actual growth syndrome of MSF-OCP HQ departments, which is also significantly impacting country coordination (CC) set-ups and means. New scenarios should be tested, notably for mono-projects (to revise), the idea being to reduce CC set-ups whenever possible. Resources' analyses highlight the importance of competent persons to follow (coordinators & key positions), including PCs, with a clearer career path.

The evaluation of National Emergency Pools MSF-OCP in Nigeria, DRC, and Chad, show variable investments and interest by missions. In certain cases there is a true added value that is recognised by teams prepared and backed up by MSF Coordinations and Paris HQs (with or without the E-desk intervention). After several years of functionning, a clearer frame has to be defined: follow up of carrier path, ad-hoc trainings, technical back up notably for emergency interventions. Periods away from emegencies should allow to improve the emergency response set ups with NEPs.

L'évaluation des Pool d'Urgence Nationaux MSF-OCP au Nigeria, en RDC, et au Tchad montre des investissements et des intérêts variables selon les missions. Dans certains cas il existe une véritable valeur ajoutée qui est reconnue avec des équipes préparées et épaulées par les Coordinations et le Siège de Paris (ceci avec ou sans intervention du Desk d'Urgence). Après plusieurs années de fonctionnement, un cadre mieux défini reste à établir : suivi de parcours, formations ad-hoc, appui technique en particulier lors d'interventions sur les urgences.

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.

The review analyses the timeliness and relevance of MSF emergency response, taking into account local actors and environment in Japan. Despite a good reactivity and explorations in remote areas affected (relevant), MSF actions can gain in efficiency (E-Prep, list of contacts, better knowledge of national strategies, etc). Capitalisation on Nuclear risks remains an issue to consider seriously.
