Migrant Health Program: New Jersey State Department of Health, 1970 Annual Report.
New Jersey State Dept. of Health, Trenton.
Included in the New Jersey State Department of Health 1970 annual report are project objectives; information on locations of clinics; summaries of health services provided to the migrant worker and his family in such areas as physician treatment services, family planning, public health nursing, health education, hospital services, dental services, maternal and child health services, eye examinations, school health services, social services, and sanitation; and descriptions of 5 county migrant health projects. Statistics show that medical and social services provided by the program reached more migrant workers than in previous years; however, extension of program services to reach a still larger percentage of the migrant population will require more bilingual field personnel, more clinic facilities, and transportation to bring patients to the necessary services. Efforts have been consistently applied to the implementation of project-supported sanitation; the potable water program and the installation of a water-borne sewage-disposal system evidence positive results. Community family counseling agencies increased assistance to migrant families in 1970, and areas of previously unmet need served better in 1970 included eye treatment and dental care.
