Özet

Background: Health care systems in many countries are changing for a variety of reasons. Monitoring of community-based services, especially vaccination coverage, is important during transition periods to ensure program effectiveness. In 2005, Turkey began a transformation from a "socialization of health services" system to a "family medicine" system. The family medicine system was implemented in the city of Gaziantep, in December, 2010.
