International SOS and Control Risks publish Travel Risk Map 2018 to help organisations better understand the risks in the markets where they operate and travel.
The Travel Risk Map displays each country’s medical risk rating and travel security risk rating. The result is a comprehensive overview of risks by destination. Highlighting to organisations the need for travel risk mitigation efforts.
Travel Risk Map has received multiple EMMA Awards, including the 2017 Award for ‘Best Thought Leadership – Survey or Research Study of the Year’ in the Americas region, the 2017 Award for ‘Best Use of Data Analytics for Global Mobility’ in the Americas region, and the 2016 EMMA Award for ‘Best use of Data Analytics within Global Mobility’ in the EMEA region.

Medical Risk Ratings are determined by the International SOS Medical Information and Analysis team by assessing a range of health risks and mitigating factors including: infectious diseases, environmental factors, medical evacuation data, the standard of available local emergency medical and dental care, access to quality pharmaceutical supplies, and cultural, language or administrative barriers. Individual country medical risk ratings are determined via a proprietary algorithm based on 24 indicators with content coming from public data sources and the first-hand knowledge of International SOS Regional Medical Directors.
Travel security risk ratings are developed by International SOS and Control Risks and are based on the current threat posed to travellers and international assignees by political violence (including terrorism, insurgency, politically motivated unrest and war), social unrest (including sectarian, communal and ethnic violence) as well as violent and petty crime. Other factors, such as the robustness of the transport infrastructure, the state of industrial relations, the effectiveness of the security and emergency services and the country’s susceptibility to natural disasters are also considered where they are of sufficient magnitude to impact the overall risk environment for travellers.
Published in 2017, Travel Risk Map is an annual rating review of the prevalent medical and security risks across the world (‘Risk Ratings’).
