Abstract
The ongoing Syrian war has jeopardized the health of all Syrians for the past six years. To attain a holistic view of Syrian health, we must consider integral factors of life including access to: food, clean water, shelter, non-food items (such as fuel), and healthcare. This project seeks to highlight the levels of compromise of Syrian subdistricts. This can be used in the future, with healthcare facility availability, to guide decision makers to prioritize allocation of assistance to the most severely compromised to minimize the spread of infectious disease.
