Introduction: The Syrian war has many humanitarian consequences for the refugees. Children in the plight of war face many health challenges due to their vulnerability to other age groups. This study aimed to investigate and analyze the public health of refugee children caused by the Syrian war.
Materials and Methods: In this Review study, an extensive search was conducted using the terms, “War”, “Syria”, “Crisis”, “Violence”, “child”, “Refuge” and “Public Health” (from PubMed, ProQuest, Sid, Google, Google Scholar, Scopus, Iran Medex, Web of Science Cinhaland WHO, UNHCR, UNICEF, OCHA databases in Farsi and English) from 2011 to 2019. The literature was independently reviewed by two authors.
Results: A total of 8 articles out of 75 articles consistent with the purpose of the study were evaluated based on inclusion and exclusion criteria and repeated studies. The results of the study showed that the unrest in the country, poor living conditions, inaccessibility to safe food and water, the collapse of health care centers and inadequate vaccination coverage have caused many infectious diseases, such as polio and measles, increased malnutrition and anemia
Discussion and Conclusion: Refugees’ children are in poor health for various reasons. Considering the vulnerability of children at war, and the high number of refugees from this age group, prevention, preparedness and response programs based on children’s needs should be designed and monitored by governments and humanitarian organizations.
Keywords: Child, Public Health War, Refuge, Syria.
