Dunya Doktorlari Dernegi in Turkey


Since the beginning of the Syria crisis, massive population movements have taken place across the Turkish border and inside Turkey. The situation has put the local public health system under strain. Although registered Syria refugees who hold identification number benefit from free healthcare in public and private health facilities, refugees often have to cover associated costs (for drugs, transportation, etc.), impacting on their already stretched financial resources. Those who do not hold identification number are entitled to free emergency care only, and have to cover the costs of primary healthcare. An estimated 10-20% of the Syria refugees seeking care in MdM-supported health facilities are not registered.
