About International SOS Foundation

Established in 2011, the International SOS Foundation – Ambassadors for
Duty of Care – has the goal of improving the safety, security, health
and welfare of people working abroad or on remote assignments through
the study, understanding and mitigation of potential risks. The
escalation of globalisation has enabled more individuals to work across
borders and in unfamiliar environments; exposure to risks which can
impact personal health, security and safety increases along with travel.
The Foundation is a registered charity and was started with a grant from
International SOS. It is a fully independent, non-profit organisation.
