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.

In February 2011, four MSF staff members acquired Lassa Fever in the MSF-run hospital, GRC (2 of whom died). This led OCB to propose an evaluation of the related events occurring in January-March, in order to learn lessons and possibly adjust internal procedures or processes. A qualitative evaluation was carried out through interviews and document-review.

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.

The evaluation analysed MSF intervention strategies of the TB project in the Penal sector of Kyrgyzstan by reviewing relevance, effectiveness and continuity. It assessed current challenges and shortcomings of the intervention in order to recommend new techniques and approaches for the year 2011 and beyond.

MSF Operational Centre Barcelona Athens (OCBA) conducted an evaluation of MSF’s withdrawal from Liberia and the transfer of the Benson Hospital – managed since 2005 by MSF OCBA - to the Ministry of Health. The aim is to gain knowledge through this handover process. The preceding evaluation on the Benson Hospital project, carried out in August 2008 (S. Delaunay; S Girvin) recognised that, for MSF OCBA, deciding on the most appropriate withdrawal process would be a challenge.

The Gondama Referral Centre (GRC) project is a reference hospital set up by Médecins Sans Frontières – Operational Centre Brussels (MSF-OCB) to provide secondary level healthcare to children under 15 and pregnant and lactating women in Gondama, Bo district in Sierra Leone. The Ministry of Health (MoH) having recently launched a free healthcare policy for the same target group1 provides a window of opportunity for MSF to gradually hand over its activities.

MSF has been present in the Nchelenge region since 1998, when a program was started to provide health care to Angolan and Congolese refugees who had arrived in the region. The MSF project in Nchelenge District was started in April 2001 because of lack of access to HIV/AIDS care in an area with an HIV prevalence estimated at 16.5%. The objective was to achieve a high coverage of treatment and care, and at the same time provide a model for decentralised programs to bring HIV/AIDS treatment and care to all people in Zambia and for MSF Holland/OCA more widely.

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.

The primary purpose of this evaluation was to help the field and HQ staff of MSF make informed decisions on the future of the Benson Hospital project, particularly the focus of future activities and a potential time frame for the handover of the services currently provided by MSF to other actors in Liberia.
