This document aims to provide a framework to better structure OCB’s operational research efforts to assure that they are responding to the needs and priorities of MSF, are feasible and adequately resourced. Before engaging in a research project,questions need to be answered: will the research be conducted in an ethical and scientifically sound way; is there sufficient operational space; are the human resources available and adequately trained; are the financial resources allocated?

OCB addresses these issues by introducing this framework, a five-step process to assure that the key stakeholders within MSF, both in the field and at headquarters, are involved.
