OBJECTIVES: Displacement, for whatever reason, is an urgent situation that affects both the migrant and the migratory society in a holistic manner, and that especially hurts Middle Eastern societies. Studies show that health problems experienced as a result of immigration are important in terms of cost reduction and quality of life. This study aimed to investigate chest diseases (CD) among refugees living in a tent camp and Turkish citizens living in the district Sanliurfa Ceylanpinar which is located in the South East of the Turkey.
