SIAPS Program’s QuanTB software will be presented on August 31 as part of the 5th regional Conference of The Asia Pacific Region of the International Union Against TB & Lung Disease in Sydney, Australia. It will be discussed during the Global Drug Facility session “Global Drug Facility as a global mechanism for sustainable access to quality assured MDR-TB medicines”.
QuanTB is a downloadable electronic forecasting, quantification, and early warning tool designed to improve procurement processes, ordering, and planning for TB treatment. QuanTB transforms complicated calculations into a user-friendly dashboard displaying key information for managing medicines and can help countries to avoid potential expiries, and stock outs of medicines. The QuanTB tool and all user guides can be accessed at the QuanTB website, http://siapsprogram.org/quantb/.
