Although international guidelines for tuberculosis (TB) control are standardized, country TB programs are often unable to properly manage the data needed for following the guidelines, resulting in poorly timed interventions.
The emergence of drug-resistant (DR-TB) has made it more difficult to manage cases and medicines, increasing the need for tools that effectively monitor diagnosing and prescribing practices and patient use, while also ensuring uninterrupted availability of TB medicines.
e-TB Manager is a web or desktop-based tool for managing all the information needed by national TB control programs. It integrates data across all aspects of TB control, including information on suspected cases, patients, medicines, laboratory testing, diagnosis, treatment, and outcome.
