Announcing a New Version of QuanTB

SIAPS program is excited to announce the launch of a new version of QuanTB, version 1.0.2, an electronic forecasting, quantification, and early warning tool designed to improve procurement processes, ordering, and planning for tuberculosis (TB) treatment.

QuanTB is now available in 6 languages: English, Russian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese. In addition, this new version includes an easier process for identifying quantities needed for emergency orders and the ability to import the number of cases from Excel, and export quantification data to Excel. An updated User Guide accompanies this version, and includes improved overall guidance and three new annexes on forecasting for multiple years, quantifying patient kits, and quantifying ancillary medicines.

The new version of the tool and User Guide can be accessed at the QuanTB website.

Feedback and questions for QuanTB version 1.0.2 are very welcome; all comments can be shared through the new QuanTB forum.
