Welcome To The Oxygen Alliance


Who We Are

The Oxygen Alliance was founded on a bold vision to make a real difference in the healthcare ecosystem. In 2021, Sanrai International and Global Health Informatics Institute (GHII) came together to tackle one of the most pressing challenges in healthcare: non-functional equipment in hospitals. At the height of COVID, non-functional oxygen equipment led to countless lives being lost. But what if these devices could be repaired and put back into service? That’s where the Oxygen Alliance comes in.

About Us 1 Oxygen Alliance

A Devotion to Maintenance & Repair​

Our initiative is a rallying call to all stakeholders to prioritise maintenance and repair of biomedical equipment. We know that non-functional equipment in hospitals is often the result of inadequate maintenance, misuse, or a lack of spare parts. But we also know that with proper repair, maintenance, and support, many of these devices can be brought back to life. By repairing these devices, we can save time and money, while improving access to lifesaving equipment, saving patient lives. Our vision is simple but ambitious: to create a resilient and sustainable healthcare infrastructure built on robust systems for maintenance and repair of medical devices in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We believe that through our work, we can significantly reduce equipment downtime and ultimately save lives.

Join us in our mission to create a culture of sustainability and resilience in healthcare. By investing in the necessary resources and prioritising maintenance and repair, we can make a real difference in the lives of millions of people around the world.
