Oxygen For India

OXYGEN FOR INDIA
Join the #OxygenForIndia initiative to help us raise funds for those in desperate need of medical #oxygen and help save lives, today!

What’s the #OxygenForIndia initiative?  
India is facing its toughest health and humanitarian crisis since independence. 

Thousands are dying simply because they cannot breathe.   


#OxygenForIndia is a volunteer-run initiative to deliver lifesaving medical oxygen to those who need it the most, and especially the poor who have little chance of being admitted to a hospital.


What’s the need of the hour?

With no hospital admissions available, the only hope for critical COVID-19 patients is to get medical oxygen supply at their homes (in the form of cylinders and oxygen concentrators). Also, small hospitals have no reliable source of medical oxygen. 

There is no specific database or helpline number to call for supplies. This has led desperate family members to rely on social media, which often leads to unreliable or outdated sources. 


What can be done?
Despite a capacity to produce at least 7,100 tonnes of oxygen every day, the country is struggling to provide it where it is needed the most due to a supply chain and distribution issue. The delay is a product of where production units are located and a stretched distribution network.

We are establishing OxygenforIndia desks at various hospitals to help people get oxygen cylinders and concentrators at zero cost. 


How does this help?
This will be a one-stop reliable solution for those in need. Providing medical oxygen helps

  • Manage home care for patients without the need for hospital admission.

  • Help hospitals with a supply of oxygen cylinders that is currently unreliable

  • Enable turnover of beds to allow new patients to be admitted. One of the reasons hospitals are not able to discharge patients is because they have no oxygen support at home. This would allow many more patients to be served.


Who we are

#OxygenForIndia is a group of individuals and organizations from a variety of backgrounds. Special thanks to The Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP) and to HealthCube, our distribution partner.
