Overseas Anaesthesia Fund (OAF)
The Overseas Anaesthesia Fund (OAF) was launched by the AAGBI in 2006 to enable individuals and organizations to donate directly to AAGBI programmes that support training and promote safer anaesthesia in developing countries. OAF is involved with a variety of projects to support anaesthetists in low- and middle-income countries. The AAGBI Foundation administers the Overseas Anaesthesia Fund. All administrative costs are met by the Foundation, so that all money that you donate goes directly to support the projects supported by OAF.
Major projects currently include a book donation programme, support for anaesthesia fellows in Uganda, the SAFE obstetric anaesthesia course and the global pulse oximetry project, Lifebox. OAF also supports anaesthesia equipment donations in certain circumstances.
