What is it about?
Despite the benefits of mobile applications in improving and sustaining health and well-being, not everyone uses them. This study focuses on factors influencing mobile health application use among Generation Z members. Our findings indicate that social influence and enjoyment are the most important factors related to mobile health app use. Privacy risk was identified as a barrier, but the strong influence of trust can be used to offset such privacy concerns.

Additionally, the study addresses barriers to adoption, provides a regional perspective from Turkey, and modifies the UTAUT model to better suit the context of mobile health apps.
