Data-driven solutions for supply chain challenges

The world is conducting the largest and most expensive vaccination campaign in history. An unprecedented focus on the logistics and risk management of vaccine distribution is essential.

Covid-19 vaccines, like most vaccines, need to be refrigerated as they travel along complex supply chains from factory to syringe. 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 posed by the pandemic.”

Protecting supply chains to save lives

 

An alliance of insurance and technology partners have formed the Global Health Risk Facility to strengthen supply chains and prepare countries for the distribution of Covid-19 vaccines and other critical diagnostics, 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 of Covid-19 vaccines and other 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 public-private syndicate created to address a global health emergency in Lloyd’s 330 year history.

1796

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.
