Protracted Armed Conflict and Maternal Health: A Scoping Review of the Literature and a Retrospective Analysis of Primary Data from Northwest Syria

Protracted conflict adversely affects health systems, with particular impacts on reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health. Our aim was to understand the state of maternal health, with a focus on underage pregnancies and cesarean sections (CSs), in Syria using mixed methods with a scoping literature review and quantitative analysis of maternal health data from the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS).

Effects of Acute Exposure to Conflict Events on Service Use and Birth Outcomes among Palestinian Refugees: Results from Electronic Medical Records Linkage across Five Settings 

Intrauterine exposure to violent conflict potentially threatens birth outcomes. We explored the effects of exposure to conflict on service/intervention use patterns (use and timing of antenatal care and caesarean section deliveries) and on stillbirth and prematurity among Palestinian refugees living in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, West Bank, and Gaza.

Afghan Refugee Women's Narratives of Pregnancy and Birth while "On the Move" through Serbia 

There is a dearth of research exploring the maternal health needs of women during their migratory journeys. Large numbers of Afghan refugees have passed through Serbia during overland journeys to the European Union (EU), often finding themselves "stuck" for months or years in Serbia as the EU has enacted increasingly restrictive border regimes. This study aims to document the lived perinatal experiences of Afghan women in Serbia and explore the provision of maternity care and support for Afghan women in Serbia during the perinatal period.
