International SOS ventures into travel security risk ratings

Travel News 01 Dec 2015

INTERNATIONAL SOS and Control Risks have jointly published the Travel Risk Map 2016, a heat map which displays medical and security hotspots around the world.

An annual Health Risk Map has been published since 2010, but is now renamed Travel Risk Map for 2016 to take into account the added travel security risk ratings.

Countries and regions are rated either ‘Extreme’, ‘High’, ‘Medium’, ‘Low’, or ‘Insignificant’ in security risk while medical risk ratings range from ‘Low’, ‘Medium’, ‘High’, ’Very High’ or ‘Rapidly Developing Variable Risk’.

The Travel Risk Map 2016 can be viewed here.
