The OI Society of Australia is primarily a support group for persons with Osteogenesis Imperfecta. In addition to being a support group, we are committed to encouraging and supporting research into this rare connective tissue disorder. We also provide education to the wider community and increase awareness of Osteogenesis Imperfecta to both the general public and professionals.

The OI Society of Australia was sad to hear of the passing of Jean Cameron Smith on the 3rd of February 2014. Jean was a staunch supporter of the OI Society, particularly in it's early, formative years. She enriched not only the lives of those who knew her, but those who's lives were touched by her generosity to the society. We send out our thoughts and prayers to the Cameron Smith family and will always remember the wonderful person that Jean was.
