Evaluation reports are either openly accessible via pdf download, or accessible via MSF's internal Sharepoint, which is mainly due to the sensitive nature of the operational contexts and resulting content. However, there are ongoing 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.

MSF has received UNITAID grants since 2013. For several financial, operational and opportunistic reasons, the opportunity and adequacy of receiving funds from UNITAID was questioned by the MSF medical and operational directors. In October 2014 the MedOp platform took a decision not to seek any further UNITAID funding for a one-year period-ending in October 2015.

This evaluation was conducted by Nicole Henze on behalf of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit of MSF. Finalised in November 2015. This publication was produced at the request of MSF MedOp, under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by Nicole Henze.

The review aimed to capture learnings from this difficult exit process in South Sudan and provides an overview of the root causes identified. Some external factors are linked to the context and the position of the authorities and they must be considered as hard to influence. The internal lessons identified can be addressed by OCB. The two key areas are the communication and working relation with South Sudanese staff and use of the (existing) know-how in OCB in regards to exiting a project.

Since 2012 MSF-OCA has been implementing a new approach to HIV/TB programming in two projects in Zimbabwe: Gokwe North district and City of Harare polyclinics. In September 2014, towards the end of their operation, an evaluation was commissioned to the Vienna Evaluation Unit with the objective to examine the intended goals, outcomes (including the standards of quality) and implementation process of the projects.

Following the restart of armed fights in South Sudan in December 2013, MSF-OCG responded to the influx of displaced and the consequent health-related needs in Minkaman village. Main findings show that after an initial delay of 6 days between the alert and conducting the first assessment, a timely response has been launched for the displaced persons, with OCG taking the lead on water supply and health care. The top ten priority package was applied with shortcomings particularly in terms of the initial assessment.

Since 2014, MSF has been implementing health programs for key populations (KP) mainly along a major transport corridor running through Mozambique and Malawi.

This evaluation was conceived to evaluate each program individually, and then to look at all programs comparatively in order to discern which interventions were most effective. Furthermore, the intention was to consider the sum of the MSF experience in these programs to infer an optimal model of care that responds best to the health needs.

 

This evaluation was conducted by Richard Bedell & Victoria Bungay under the management of the Stockholm Evaluation Unit of MSF. Finalized in December 2018.

This evaluation was commissioned with the objective to enhance future operational performance by means of lessons learned from the intervention in Hajjah Governorate from 30 March to October 2017 in order to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by cholera outbreaks in similarly complex settings. Evaluation findings showed that the intervention contributed to reduce morbidity, mortality and human suffering, even though data collection was chaotic in the beginning.

This publication was produced at the request of MSF OCBA, under the management of the Vienna Evaluation Unit. It was prepared independently by François Grünewald and Dr Paula Farias.

This evaluation takes stock of the two and a half year handover process that started in June 2011. The evaluation highlights both the operational strengths and weaknesses and identifies areas for improvement. The work aims to inform the replicability of the handover tools and approach. The evaluation finds that, at patient level, there has been no impact on the continuity of care and that gives a good indication of a sustainable and smooth take over by MoH.

Given the health needs, the relevance of MSF-OCP intervention in Yida refugee camp (60 000) makes no doubts. Analyses highlight reasons for the delay in scaling up the project in emergency phase, April to August 2012 : if at the end, efficacy/efficiency of operations were ensured, lessosn must be drawn from this intervention. Omitting to set up a surveillance system and refusing to engage in non-medical activities constituted strategic failures.

MSF-OCG has been working in South Sudan since 1997; in the area of Abyei since 2006. Due to context changes, MSF had to adapt its medical strategy significantly over the years. This evaluation of project relevance and effectiveness aimed at informing the future strategy. It used a comprehensive cross-sector approach (multidisciplinary) with direct participation of the MSF actors involved in the Agok project at all levels.
