Özet

Our purpose in this study is to explore the effect that increases in the Syrian refugee population could have on public maternal and child health outcomes. Data collected from official records from 81 Turkish provinces in 2018, and then, subjected to mediating analysis using a path analytic approach to examine the interrelationships between the Syrian population, adolescent marriage, and economic integration factors on refugee maternal and child health outcomes. An increase in the Syrian population would lead to a rise in adolescent birth rates and under-5 mortality under the mediating effect of an increase in adolescent female marriage.
