The General Monitoring Authority in Turkey said that between 2011 and 2017, 276,158 children had been born to Syrian refugees living in Turkey.

The report noted that the first batch of Syrian refugees entered Turkey on April 29, 2011.

Temporary health centers in the refugee camps work under the supervision of the Turkish Health Ministry and medical staff are screened by the ministry.

According to statistics from August 2017, the number of health sector workers in the temporary health centers in the refugee camps was about 498, which included doctors and nurses.
