MIGRANT HEALTH PROJECT, PENNSYLVANIA, 1966--ANNUAL PROGRESS REPORT REPORT ON HEALTH AND MEDICAL SERVICES FOR MIGRANTS, PROJECT GRANT 33, UNITED STATES PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE.
CHAPMAN, A.L.; AND OTHERS
HEALTH SERVICES WERE MADE AVAILABLE TO SOME 6176 SEASONAL AGRICULTURAL MIGRANTS IN A FIFTEEN-COUNTY PROJECT AREA OF PENNSYLVANIA DURING 1966. THIS PROJECT IS AN EXTENSION AND EXPANSION OF A FOUR-COUNTY MIGRANT HEALTH PROGRAM BEGUN IN 1963. THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY THIS PROGRAM HAVE BEEN EXPANDED FROM OUT-PATIENT SERVICES TO INCLUDE DENTAL CARE, IN-HOSPITAL SERVICE, PREVENTIVE HEALTH SERVICES, AND A SANITATION PLAN FOR MIGRANT CAMPS. THE OUT-PATIENT SERVICES WERE PROVIDED THROUGH THREE TYPES OF CONTRACT MECHANISM--(1) A CONTRACT FOR MIGRANT CLINICS IN HOSPITALS, (2) FEE--FOR SERVICE AGREEMENTS WITH HOSPITALS, AND (3) FEE--FOR SERVICE AGREEMENTS WITH PHYSICIANS. FOURTEEN PUBLIC HEALTH NURSES WERE USED TO VISIT THE MIGRANT CAMPS, AND SERVED AS THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF REFERRALS TO PROJECT CLINICS. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SANITARIANS INSPECTED SOME 344 OF 404 EXISTING MIGRANT LABOR CAMPS. ALTHOUGH MUCH PROGRESS HAS BEEN EXPERIENCED IN ALL AREAS OF MIGRANT HEALTH SERVICES, CONTINUED EFFORTS TOWARD IMPROVEMENT WILL BE NECESSARY IN THE FUTURE. (ES)
