Dr. Anurag Bhargava, Professor, Yenepoya University, Mangaluru has developed N-TB app for patients suffering from tuberculosis to provide them with nutritional information.

 

N- TB asks for specific details such as the height and weight of a person and then gives information about their health status based on the calculated BMI.

 

Further, it also gives information about what diet the person should take, according to the BMI.

 

While the Center for Nutrition Studies, Yenepoya University provided the content for the app, it was developed with technical support from McGill International TB Centre, Montreal.

 

The android based application has reportedly been endorsed by Revised National Tuberculosis Control Programme (RNTCP) and World Health Organisation (WHO).
