The USAID-funded Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) has launched version 3.0 of the QuanTB tool.
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 stock-outs and expiries of medicines.
The Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO) honored MSH at a ceremony recognizing foreign NGOs' contributions to the country's sustainable development. The November 17 ceremony honored 45 organizations, chosen from a pool of 493 NGOs, at the event.
