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. Alternatively, if you are interested in receiving a copy of an evaluation report, please contact us

Cette évaluation de MSF-OCP concerne la revue critique de l’intervention MSF en urgence pour les réfugiés sud-soudanais en Ethiopie, début 2014 (partie de l’intention d’une revue globale des réponses MSF aux crises avec déplacements massifs de pop°– décision du BI/5 DG MSF, 2014). Ici à Gambella, la réponse aux 11 priorités connues / besoins des réfugiés est vérifiée systématiquement – alors que la réactivité initiale est satisfaisante, il existe une certaine perte de savoir-faire dans des domaines opérationnels majeurs (cf détails dans le rapport).

An external evaluation of the support programs has been conducted between April and June 2015. This 360° snapshot was aiming at evaluating the appropriateness, the effectiveness and the impact of the support activities operated from Turkey and Lebanon.

The evaluation looks at the process for managing MSF-OCP's construction/rehabilitation projects since 2012. The main problems identified are not related to the process itself, but the way it is put into application. The main users pointed out the long delays (periods of indicision) as being the biggest difficulty, followed by budget/cost issues (cost/m² estimates) , and the quality of constructions (techniques, materials, etc). One of the root causes of delays relates to unclear/incomplete definition of roles and responsibilities = actions to take.

Through a series of case studies, the authors reflect on how medical aid workers dealt with the incongruity of practicing conventional evidence-based medicine in contexts that require unconventional approaches.

To address protection, however, is to address the question of our responsibility and role when confronted with violence, in the context of healthcare. Has this question been settled once and for all within MSF? In order to provide elements for a reply, the study looks at the practices and discourse, both past and present, employed by MSF (headquarters, field teams, individuals) when faced with situations of violence affecting either the population in general, or the people we assist.

Humanitarian medicine is intended for marginalized people, hit by a crisis or deprived of access to medical care. It is made up of a wide range of practices with few obvious connections between them. Some of them rely on specific know-how, built up through borrowing and innovation primarily over the last three decades, whilst others reflect a different way of using the knowledge we already have. This study helps us understand how the specificity of humanitarian medicine stems from real-life situations, more than from the medical act in itself.

This survey investigates patients’ coping mechanisms and their dependence on medical institutions both from the patients’ standpoint and from that of MSF’s project teams.

A series of failures was the starting point for this analysis. Several outbreaks of hepatitis E, transmitted via the water supply, occurred in refugee and IDP sites in the Sahel (Sudan in 2004, and Chad in 2007) and in central Africa (Central African Republic in 2002, and Uganda in 2007). MSF was responsible for all or part of the water supply, as well as medical care. These outbreaks are a reminder that significant infectious risks persists even after we implement our usual procedures.

The Ebola Workshop in Dakar, held over 3 days in June 2015, brought together experienced Ebola field people and HQ staff from diverse specialties and all MSF sections to reflect on lessons learned so far and make recommendations in the areas of outreach response, patient care, human resources and strategy. Participants placed a high value on intersectional approaches within MSF, and on strong engagement with key external organizations in preparing flexible, adapted, more effective responses to future outbreaks of Ebola or other mass epidemics.
