|Title||The effects of internal migration on women’s health in Turkey|
Internal migration in Turkey has been doubled within the last 25 years. According to
the Turkey Migration and Displaced Population Survey (2006); total population was found
67.8 million, nearly 4.1 million people migrated and 10.7% of the population aged between
18-69 have the intention of migrating at some time in the future.
Some of the impacts of the migration process in Turkey has had on women are:
frequent pregnancies and having many children; not being able to receive adequate antenatal
care; a high rate of perinatal mortality; and undergoing labour. Nurses should be aware of the
biological, social and cultural variables which may affect migrant women’s health, as well as
other important issues such as their health traditions, beliefs and life styles.
