GISF is pleased to announce our latest business partnership with International SOS.

For almost four decades, International SOS has supported NGOs across the globe in protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of their staff, contractors and volunteers who are at home and abroad on assignment. Whether for business, supporting an emergency response or delivering long-term projects, they are your partner in helping you meet your Duty of Care responsibilities. From terrorism, targeted violence or global pandemics, crises are occurring more frequently and each time, the aid community responds in strength. International SOS enables a rapid response with support and assistance from over 1,000 locations in 90 countries, 24/7, 365 days a year with 13,000 security, medical, logistics and digital experts at your fingertips.

Ryan Clark, International SOS’s Senior Vice President & General Manager: Mid-Atlantic & Southeast Region, said: ‘International SOS is delighted to partner with GISF. We share the common goal of keeping humanitarian and aid workers healthy and safe and driving positive change in humanitarian security risk management. GISF is a go to resource for the sector and unites the community. Their efforts in driving innovation, inclusivity, and collaboration are widely recognized and closely aligned with our mission and values. We are looking forward to a long-term partnership with GISF’.

GISF is dedicated to achieving sustainable access for crisis-affected populations and keeping aid workers safe by fostering positive advancements in security risk management through research, events, and collaboration. Our business partnership programme allows companies to assist our members in the humanitarian, development, and human rights sectors in safeguarding the physical and mental well-being of their personnel in hostile environments. This program presents an opportunity for businesses to drive positive transformations and contribute to the successful implementation of aid projects. Additionally, it grants partners access to various resources and expertise to ensure the safety of their own employees.

We are delighted to have the support of International SOS as we strive to enable aid workers to conduct their programs securely and in a sustainable manner.
