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.

This evaluation contributes to the debate around the OCB Martissant intervention following the proposed closure and resulting decision to scale down in 2013. The report concludes that the context remains similar to that of the beginning therefore the intervention is still as relevant as it was in 2006 however the evaluation questions the suitability of OCB's country wide strategy in Haiti, urging a focus towards the most vulnerable and marginalised urban populations, rather than towards the general needs of the population.

In 2010 the operational prospects for OCB (strategic operational plan) outlined the broad objectives for the coming three years and placed renewed attention on key medical areas including surgery and emergency and acute medicine, bringing about increased investment in two hospital programs where OCB focussed on providing emergency surgical care in third level facilities in Tabarre and Kunduz.

This review was commissioned by the International Board of MSF to reflect on the lessons learned for Movement governance from the early months of the MSF response to the recent Ebola crisis in West Africa. It focuses on the first six months of the Ebola outbreak (from April to September 2014), and on Movement governance issues only. The findings are based on analysis of relevant records, minutes of platform meetings, and interviews with a cross-section of the key people involved in Movement governance during this period.

In May 2016, concerns were raised at OCB HQ about the potential underestimation of the general IRFFG implementation costs. The OCB mission in Haiti had to retroactively disburse an unbudgeted 1.33M€ of severance pay to their staff, more than a year after the IRFFG implementation in the country.

The Medical Unit (MU; previously Project Unit) in MSF Australia was established in 2005 to develop a co-ownership of the field operations and expand MSF Australia’s involvement with MSF OCP. Today it includes technical advice for OCP operations as well as training and communication on activities relating to women and child health. The objective of the reflective was to summarize and analyse the contribution of the Medical Unit of MSF Australia to reproductive, women’s and children’s health within the operational capability of MSF OCP.

Suite au séisme du 12 janvier 2010 en Haïti, MSF-OCG intervient en urgence dans la zone touchée et offre des soins aux blessés. Alors qu’une grande partie des structures de santé de la zone affectée par le séisme sont endommagées ou détruites, MSF-OCG décide de s’impliquer rapidement dans une intervention à moyen terme, soit la mise en place d’un hôpital en container de 120 lits sur la commune de Léogâne (épicentre du tremblement de terre où 80% des bâtiments ont été détruit).

The purpose of this evaluation was to assess the functioning of the hospital set-up in Léogâne, Haiti one year after its implementation and to capture the lessons learned in order to inform other missions that attempt this type of set-up. The conclusions are based on two visits, the first at the 6-month mark and the second approximately one year following the initial implementation. In general, there is a positive attitude towards the set-up and the advantage of quick and relevant decision-making was felt in most departments at almost all levels.

This evaluation was conducted by Annie Désilets on behalf of the MSF Vienna Evaluation Unit.

The Intersectional Philippines MSF Typhoon Haiyan Emergency Response review was requested by the Executive Committee of MSF. It was designed to examine the operational choices of each Operational Centre, the perceived cost disparity, the role of the MSF regional offices in the emergency and the external perception regarding MSF's added value in the response. The review took place during August and November 2014. Overall the response by MSF to Typhoon Haiyan was well perceived by all involved.
