The OxygenForIndia initiative was founded by CDDEP/the One Health Trust and partnering institutions to address critical oxygen shortages—a problem revealed by the COVID-19 pandemic. OxygenForIndia’s goal is to ensure that no one in India dies for lack of medical oxygen. During the devastating humanitarian crisis of April 2021, OxygenForIndia deployed 20,000 reusable oxygen cylinders and 3,000 oxygen concentrators in 57 urban and rural centers across India. Currently, the OHT team and partners are working to build a stable and reliable oxygen supply system to avoid preventable deaths and improve pandemic preparedness. To achieve this objective, researchers are evaluating fiscal initiatives and building India’s health system capacities.
