International SOS and Control Risks publish Travel Risk Map 2016 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 to aid organisations and staff in their travel risk mitigation efforts.
Travel Security Risk Ratings are developed by International SOS and Control Risks and are based on the current threat posed to travellers and expatriates from a number of factors including political violence, social unrest and crime. Transport infrastructure and emergency services are also considered as they may impact the overall ability for a government or private organisation to mitigate or respond to risks.
Medical Risk Ratings are determined by the International SOS Medical Information and Analysis team following a review of health factors including endemic diseases, environmental risks, road and security conditions, and the quality and availability of health care within country. 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.
