Resources and Reference Materials on Agricultural Worker Health
MHP Salud has been serving American’s Latino Communities for over 35 years. For much of that time, we’ve focused on empowering America’s agricultural workers by increasing their access to health through CHW programs. In order to help other organizations and people learn more about these amazing communities, the people within them, and how the Community Health Worker model can benefit them, we have developed a number of resources that are available for free and licensed to be distributed for educational use.
The Farmworker Health Network (FHN) is comprised of six National Cooperative Agreements in migrant health funded through the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide training and technical assistance to current and potential Migrant Health Center Programs. The FHN is committed to supporting the development of leadership within Community and Migrant Health Centers and increasing access to care for the farmworker population. This document is a series of resources collected from FHN partners.
The FHN works to assure the visibility of the Migrant Health Program within HHS and other governmental and private organizations through the articulation of issues; analysis and comment on proposed policy and procedural documents; dissemination of population specific information; and provision of technical assistance services to address the need for information, training, and education. This document contains key resources from each of the FHN members that highlight best practices and field-tested models.
Training for your organization, made simple.
In addition to publishing resources and conducting our own Community Health Worker (CHW) programs, MHP Salud offers a variety of training and consulting services to help organizations create and optimize their own CHW programs. When we provide these services, we put our 35 years of experience to work to enhance your organization’s services and improve your overall reach. Does your organization employ Community Health Workers? We can help.
