Annual Progress Report, June 1, 1969-June 1, 1970. Colorado Migrant Health Program.
Colorado State Dept. of Health, Denver.
Narrative and statistical data on the Colorado Migrant Health Program are presented in this 1969-70 annual progress report. The objectives of the program were to develop, augment, and improve health care services to migrant agricultural workers and their families; to develop, expand, and improve existing programs; and to establish and maintain lines of communication with other agencies involved in the health, education, and welfare of migrants. Separate sections of the report cover the following areas: consumer reaction, dental care, medical care, hospitalization policy, public health nursing care, home economics consultation, and environmental health services. Some of the major problems mentioned are a shortage of trained personnel, inadequate program funding, and the short time that the migrant workers stay in any particular region. It is noted that the mobility of the migrant workers makes follow-up care very difficult. The types and amounts of care given to migrants during the reporting period are presented (by counties) in both narrative and tabular form. (PS)
