Data-driven solutions for supply chain challenges

Many critical health and humanitarian treatments and supplies need to be refrigerated as they travel along complex supply chains from factory to patient. This journey across thousands of miles by air, land and sea can be perilous.


We are thrilled to be launching the Global Health Risk Facility at Lloyd’s – a fantastic example of the way in which our global insurance market has come together to deliver an innovative new solution and model for solving complex global risk challenges.”

John Neal, CEO, Lloyd's of London

Protecting supply chains to save lives


An alliance of insurance and technology partners formed the Global Health Risk Facility to strengthen supply chains and support countries in the distribution of critical health and humanitarian treatments and supplies.

By utilizing better data and technology, the GHRF protects both the quality of these life-saving goods as well as the financial investments made to supply them.

Risk sharing for a safer world

The GHRF is anchored by Parsyl’s Syndicate 1796, which was designed to insure the storage and transportation life-saving health products to developing countries.

The syndicate operates at Lloyd’s of London, the world’s specialist insurance marketplace where members join together to underwrite complex risks. Syndicate 1796 is the first mission-driven syndicate created in Lloyd’s 330 year history.


The Syndicate has been given the number ‘1796’ in honor of the year physician Edward Jenner carried out his first experiments in what would become the smallpox vaccine, the world’s first vaccine and the only disease the world has ever eradicated through vaccination.
