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.

The Arche de Kigobe Trauma Centre project implemented between 2015 and 2021 in Burundi by the Brussels-based Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Operational Centre  Brussels (OCB) is a project started in response to an acute violent crisis in connection with the electoral dispute in Burundi in 2015. The project aimed to reduce mortality and morbidity related  to trauma in the city of Bujumbura and its surroundings. Initially an emergency project, it made an adjustment in its structure to integrate the care of victims of road accidents, victims of sexual violence, and psychological care.

In 2009/2010 following the decentralisation of HIV care to primary health care in Maputo City, the former MSF-OCG Alto Maé day hospital was transformed into the chronic care HIV referral centre Centro de Referência Alto Maé (CRAM) with a double purpose: 1) to provide a safety net for the health centres of Chamanculo health area for the clinical management of complex HIV patients that do not require hospitalisation and 2) to reduce the workload of Maputo’s referral hospitals.

This evaluation was conducted by Eric Goemaere and Heidi Becher on behalf of the Vienna Evaluation Unit.

The HIV/AIDS project in Chamanculo Health area has achieved an impressive coverage of the ART treatment through the well-applied decentralization and task-shifting strategies. The evaluation demonstrated that the quality of the care was not compromised through this process. This decentralization model shall be valuable for the MoH to scale-up their ART treatment coverage in other areas of this resource-poor country.

MSF-OCA has been addressing a highly relevant issue, TB and DR-TB in Uzbekistan. A steady decrease of the notification and the mortality rates has been indicating a good outcome of the TB DOTS programme. MSF is highly appreciated by the MOH of Uzbekistan as one of the main partners in TB control and the first one who started the diagnosis and treatment of DR-TB. The current model of comprehensive TB care was estimated as the most appropriate approach for this low-income country with high TB/MDR-TB burden. It could be successfully expanded to elsewhere in the region.
