Socio-economic disorders like poverty, inflation, high prices, etc provide a favorable environment for various types of social harms. Therefore, the concept of pathology is widespread. Harandi neighborhood is one of the neighborhoods in the south of Tehran that despite its long historical and even socio-economic background, today has become one of the most problematic neighborhoods of Tehran and can be referred to as an abandoned neighborhood.
