Update of the IAPB Valued Supplier website

Update of the IAPB Valued Supplier website

IAPB is delighted to announce the launch of our brand new and updated IAPB Valued Supplier Scheme website, with a fresh design and many new features, making for a contemporary and easy-to-use user experience.

Our ambition is to help buyers, particularly those from low- and middle- income countries, make informed procurement decisions from the IAPB Valued Suppliers catalogue.

Peter Holland, CEO, IAPB said, “the Valued Supplier scheme brings together quality eye care suppliers and showcases products best suited for eye care delivery in a public health setting. The website fills a critical gap in the sector, and I am delighted that the new design and added features add considerable improvements to a much-loved IAPB service.”

The website has a host of new features.

You can create an account and save custom lists of products and suppliers for easy reference in the future. This provides a number of advantages:

  • My List: Save products to a downloadable list you can use when contacting suppliers for a quotation.
  • Saved Suppliers: Save a list of suppliers to bookmark for quick access.
  • Favourites: Save products to your favourites to bookmark for quick access.
  • Account Details: View and edit your account details for use in request for quotes.

Please note: If you were registered on the old site, you will need to re-register your details on the new site, which is a very simple process.

Request for Quotes (RFQs). We have a new updated feature to obtain a detailed quotation from the Valued Supplier.  Click on the ‘Request a Quote’ button in the product, and complete and submit the form. If you have registered your details prior to completing the form, your details will be automatically completed to save time. The supplier will email you a quotation within a few days.

All the products have been evaluated to ensure that they are all relevant, appropriate and up-to-date. A new category system has been introduced together with a powerful search and filters to assist the user to source and locate products easily.

We are always looking for new innovative and affordable technologies in eye health, and you can help. Do you have direct experience with a product? Contact us by email.

We hope you find the new website useful and welcome your feedback.
