In recent years, the region has strengthened its role as a global business hub. More local organisations and multinationals with a regional-based headquarters, are carefully considering best practices in occupational health. The necessity too - to comply with differing local regulations, has become more in demand than ever before.

International SOS works with our clients to find unique solutions to help them mitigate medical and travel security risks. We offer a broad range of services from corporate membership and customisable pre-travel eLearning, to bespoke consulting services, such as health impact assessments and pandemic planning. 

We have also developed an online travel risk mitigation tool,TravelTracker, which allows our clients to determine how many of their employees are in a certain location and to communicate with them immediately during a crisis. Our travel security team based in the region update and develop our network of providers to extend our reach to where our clients operate.
