Ostomy Association of India (OAI) was formed  in 1975 and is a pioneer in serving Ostomates across the Indian Subcontinent.

We are a not-for-profit association affiliated to Indian Cancer Society (ICS), registered under the Bombay Public Trust. We are also a member of the International Ostomy Association (IOA).

OAI is a self-help group of people who have all undergone diversional surgery of the Gastro-Intestinal and Genito-Urinary tract.

As a not-for-profit association, OAI is totally reliant on the support of Donors, members, friends, volunteers and a very dedicated staff team. OAI is endorsed as an income tax exempt charitable entity. Funds received as donations are used to procure Ostomy appliances/kits from suppliers at competitive rates and supplied to members on a no-profit no-loss basis. Appliances/kits are also given on free of cost basis to poor and needy patients.
