In its financial year ended 30 June 2022, the company generated revenue of $1.7 billion. The assistance services business was boosted by an upturn in subscriptions, while the healthcare business continued to be supported by Covid-related requirements, particularly in clinics. Overall, since the start of the pandemic, the company has worked on more than 85,000 Covid-related situations, vaccinated more than 300,000 people and carried out almost 500 air ambulance movements for more than 800 patients. In 2021/22, International SOS also started working in certain regions experiencing major geopolitical tension or protest movements, such as Afghanistan, Kazakhstan and Ukraine. The group continued to extend its assistance offering and to develop healthcare services for governments, a business area that shows major potential. International SOS has obtained Silver certification from EcoVadis, putting it in the top 5% of companies in the human health sector.
