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.

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.

MSF is one of the pioneering organisations to implement HIV & AIDS related interventions including ART in different settings. Understandably, the organisation is thus often solicited to provide information on cost analysis of programs. This is the purpose of this study into 3 different MSF HIV/AIDS programs: Kenya, DRC and Malawi. The present study proposes a detailed description of the cost for the HIV/AIDS program in Thyolo in Malawi for the period of time from 2005 to 2007. The methodology used is inspired by the “Activity based costing” (ABC approach)

In January 2006 the MSF-CH Meditrina was launched in Zürich with the objective to provide first-line medical assistance to people excluded from the Swiss health care system, primarily on the grounds of their illegal presence on Swiss territory. A team of the two evaluators reviewed documents, interviewed Meditrina team, beneficiaries, stakeholders and authorities, visited project sites.

The Meditrina project was initiated in January 2006 as a gate-keeping system based on the model of Frisanté in Fribourg. Meditrina had a low frequentation after one year. A pro-active strategy was then started. Ten months later, this mid-term evaluation is done in order to show the impact of the new strategy and to propose future orientation.

MSF's HIV/AIDS project in Thyolo district, Malawi was one of the MSF movement's earliest efforts to address HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, beginning in 1997. The handover of project responsibilities from MSF Luxembourg to MSF Belgium took place in 2005. MSF Belgium agreed to undertake this external evaluation of the project with the goal of assessing the project's performance, identifying constraints preventing the achievement of its goals, and proposing recommendations to improve overall effectiveness.

This evaluation is best understood as a peer review aimed at learning from the experiences of 3 different sections of MSF operating HIV/AIDS programmes in Malawi. Our aim was to evaluate how specific differences in objectives might impact on programme strategies and whether these differences would be relevant when assessing programme outcomes. The general issues of interest were decentralisation, simplification and task shifting in relation to the expansion of ART services.

This operational evaluation, requested by the Emergency Department of MSFOCB, concerns only the emergency response in Aceh in the first three months (from 26th Dec 2004). The report illustrates MSF intervention strategy, a description of implemented activities and draws lessons learned from the confronted challenges.

The evaluation describes an evolving approach to address the needs of traumatised internally displaced Indonesians. The evaluation focuses on how MSF responded to new insights documented in lessons learned and trip reports. The purpose of this is to inform a discussion of how to proceed with mental health in Indonesia, which will be formalised in the country policy.
