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 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.

Variable experience with handover and internal debates about MSF responsibility to patients led OCG to propose an evaluation of the handover process, to learn from experience and inform policy and practice. A qualitative review was carried out through interviews, case studies in Cameroon and Laos, and review of other vertical and integrated HIV projects.

Médecins Sans Frontières has been running HIV/AIDS treatment programmes since 2001. As national systems scaled up capacity, MSF began to hand over HIV projects in 2005. Variable experience with handover and internal debates about MSF responsibility to patients led OCG to propose an evaluation of the handover process, to learn from experience and inform policy and practice. A qualitative review was carried out through interviews, case studies in Cameroon and Laos, and review of other vertical and integrated HIV projects.

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.

The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the handover of the HIV program to the Bureau of Health (BoH) in the Kahsay Abera Hospital (KAH), Humera, Ethiopia, in 2007. The lessons learnt during the handover process could be of value to other MSF teams faced with an impeding handover of activities to the local health structure. A document in this vein was written directly following the handover in July 2007 however this current text acts as an updated version using the knowledge gained during the ten months following handover.

The Bosnia programme was one of the largest programmes MSF has implemented so far, and it was the first major operation MSF executed in an European environment. There was a widely shared view that the programme had gone “out of control”. As a result, many within MSF considered drug distribution in general as being beyond the scope of MSF. The dominance of drug distribution in the programme was perceived to be in contradiction with the medical identity of MSF.
