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.

Country/Region

In recent years, MSF has noted that ‘social violence’ is strongly linked to health exclusion and dysfunctional health systems. Therefore, the Operational Centre Geneva (OCG) initiated an intervention in Honduras in 2010 and a project in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico in January 2014. The current evaluation aims to determine the pertinence, appropriateness, effectiveness and impact of the OCG projects in Honduras and Mexico in responding to identified needs.

In recent years, MSF has recognised the need to improve its handover process and outcomes. It is no longer satisfactory for the organisation to enter a country, put in place a programme and leave without some degree of accountability for what remains after MSF’s departure. This tendency has led the MSF Operational Centre Paris (OCP) to review the handover process of the Homa Bay County Hospital project in Kenya. The main goal of this evaluation is to explore how effective the handover strategy was in contributing to sustainable, comprehensive quality of HIV/TB care in Homa Bay.

OCB initiated the Kibera project at a time when there was a lack of access to affordable HIV/TB health care and succeeded in providing HIV drugs in Kenya, against all odds. The initial decision to intervene in Kibera was based on need and while the needs remain massive, OCB is no longer alone in providing HIV and TB treatment, hence the opportunity to handover the responsibilities of the health facilities to the Nairobi County to ensure that the population is not abandoned and that the quality care and treatment is continued.

This report describes the OCB Khayelitsha Project, initiated in 2000, as one of the first MSF projects in Africa to introduce antiretroviral treatment (ART) into the public sector. Currently implementing HIV and tuberculosis (TB) programs, it has produced dozens of very well-received publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals, in large part because of its innovative strategies, major investment in a locally driven monitoring and evaluation system, and a long-standing collaboration with the University of Cape Town (UCT), civil society and local health authorities.

This evaluation finds that the Kibera Project has had a tremendous impact at the patient, community and policy level. Additionally, the report points out that the decentralisation of health services at the primary health care level has been a core tenet of the project as it has evolved from a vertical HIV/AIDS programme to a multi-clinic operation offering comprehensive health care.

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.

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.

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).
