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 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.

Le présent rapport décrit les résultats de l’évaluation des deux interventions d’urgence : flambée de paludisme et épidémie de rougeole, menées par OCG dans la Province Orientale de la République Démocratique du Congo entre juin 2012 à juillet 2013. Il s’agit d’une évaluation rétrospective qui s’est déroulée entre mars et mai 2014, avec une méthodologie basée principalement sur une revue des documents disponibles ainsi que sur les entretiens avec les personnes ressources.

This report sets out the results of the evaluation of two emergency interventions: outbreak of malaria and measles epidemic, carried out by OCG in Orientale Province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo between June 2012 and July 2013. It is a retrospective evaluation that was done between March and May 2014, with the methodology based mainly on a review of documents and interviews with resource persons. Its objective was to capitalise on the lessons learned so as to improve preparation and response capacity for future epidemics in similar situations.

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.

The evaluation of the PUC (Congo Emergency Pool/ Pool D’urgence Congo) finds that the project, as a full epidemiological surveillance, assessment and response system is extraordinarily well structured, having developed both a technically sound complex methodology and working tools, with a capacity for reacting to epidemiological outbursts very swiftly and effectively. It also finds that there is no other international or national organisation with such impressive medical expertise and response capacity within the context.

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.
