Abstract

Quantitative analysis was performed using MSF’s medical and humanitarian data to show the indirect, or less visible, impact of war on public health with a primary focus on child’s health in Northern Syria between 2013-2016. In conclusion, different ways should be identified to more systematically capitalise on quantitative and qualitative data. This way, population’s plight can be better advocated in complex emergencies such as Syria.
