Sanrai Wins a Grant for an "Oxygen as a Service" Project - Sanrai International


We are very excited to announce that Sanrai has been selected as a grant winner of the Oxygen Co-Lab “Oxygen as a Service” (O2aaS) Competition. Thank you to the Oxygen Co-Lab team, Covid Actions, Foreign, Commonwealth, & Development Office UK (FCDO), and UNICEF!


After 3 rounds, including a Dragons Den style pitch to judges from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada, UNICEF, Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), and others, Sanrai is pleased to be one of two awardees! We congratulate FreO2 from Australia with a project in Tanzania as well.


Sanrai will be running a program providing American made Drive DeVilbiss 10 LPM Oxygen Concentrators in at least 10 hospitals across Chandigarh, Punjab, and Haryana in city and rural government hospitals.


The objective of this Pilot Project is to provide a reliable source of oxygen without relying only on filled cylinders that are regularly refilled and replaced offsite. Oxygen is currently delivered in India through a complex infrastructure involving payments, forecasting, orders, and deliveries between multiple locations. We aim to provide a cost competitive and more reliable, sustainable solution. We hope that within 6 months, we can show - 

  • A savings in cost per litre of oxygen
  • An increase in the available litres per oxygen in the hospital
  • Oxygen being used in wards that it was not previously being used in (like maternal care, outpatient surgery clinics, wound care centers, etc.)

By using oxygen concentrators, hospitals can easily increase the amount of available oxygen immediately. Our goal is to share the successes and learnings from this program to improve access to oxygen in all emerging markets.
