Farmworker Health-Related Bibliography.
National Association of Farmworker Organizations, Washington, DC.
Documents pertaining to migrant and seasonal farmworker health comprise this bibliography of over 300 entries, nearly 100 of them annotated. The purpose of the bibliography is to provide health groups within the National Association of Farmworker Organizations with literature which may guide further research related to the provision of health care for farmworkers and their dependents. Entries, the majority dating from the mid and early 1970's, cover a wide range of health-related topics including occupational hazards and diseases, health insurance, employment statistics, census figures, and demographic data for the farmworker population. Entries deal with local, state, and federal issues and include the health problems of specific subgroups of the farmworker population, e.g., children, Mexican Americans, American Indians. Selected documents from the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of the Interior, and the Department of Commerce are included among the annotated entries.
