This study utilized anonymized data spanning from January 2022 to July 2023, which were publicly accessible through the Reliefweb platform as provided by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) (OCHA, 2023b) (OCHA, 2023a). The information was also sourced from health cluster dashboards (Health Cluster, 2023) and processed for analytical purposes using SPSS v25. Authorization for the use of this data for research was officially obtained from the health cluster based in Gaziantep. The dataset employed for this research was consistently provided by health cluster partners comprising health NGOs active in NWS. These partners submitted their data through the 4Ws (Who does What, Where, and When) system, which reports on the activities and services provided by these NGOs in the target areas through the existing health facilities (Witter et al., 2023). The research incorporated several variables, including the number of monthly outpatient consultations—both overall and those exclusively administered by mobile services—categorized by gender and age (adult men, adult women, boys under 18, and girls under 18); the number of total functional health facilities and mobile facilities per month; and the total of healthcare personnel recruited for mobile clinics per month.
