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.

Cette évaluation de MSF-OCP concerne la revue critique de l’intervention MSF en urgence pour les réfugiés sud-soudanais en Ethiopie, début 2014 (partie de l’intention d’une revue globale des réponses MSF aux crises avec déplacements massifs de pop°– décision du BI/5 DG MSF, 2014). Ici à Gambella, la réponse aux 11 priorités connues / besoins des réfugiés est vérifiée systématiquement – alors que la réactivité initiale est satisfaisante, il existe une certaine perte de savoir-faire dans des domaines opérationnels majeurs (cf détails dans le rapport).

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).

Since civil unrest and violence erupted in countries across Northern Africa and the Middle East (referred as NAME in the document) teams from the five MSF OCs (Operational Centres) have been assisting the populations. OCB has mainly been active in Egypt, Bahrain, Libya and Italy (Lampedusa with the influx of migrants from the Northern African regions). Activities and challenges have varied from one context to another. The overall aim of the mapping/compilation is to describe all of OCB’s activities from January to August 2011, in relation to the unrests.

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.

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.

In recent years, MSF has recognized the need to improve its handover process and outcomes. It is no longer satisfactory for the organization to enter a country, put in place a program and leave without taking some accountability for what remains after MSF’s departure. It is in this spirit that I accepted to come to Lesotho to evaluate a handover tool that was implemented here during the initial phase of the handover.

After an initial period of three years in Lesotho, MSF has decided to extend its presence in the country for two more years and to launch a second phase of the project primarily focused on intensifying the transfer of responsibility for the programme to local health authorities and partners. This is due partly to the administrative process now underway in Lesotho to decentralise to local government, coupled with related health sector reforms, which have divided the former catchment area of Scott Hospital Health Service Area into two districts with different management structures.

This study sheds light on the mechanisms producing the official data used by humanitarian aid decision makers. It views Early Warning Systems (EWS) as tools that facilitate consensus between the decision-makers involved in the allocation of food aid, enabling them to reach institutional agreements. This argument is strengthened by a socio-theoretical analysis and by ethnographic observation of experts' practice in Ethiopia (2002-2004), whose results of food aid evaluations appear as a combination of empirical and political factors.
