Farmworker Health

In addition to experiencing IPV, migrant and seasonal agricultural workers may encounter additional disparities and barriers to care that make prevention and supports more complex. Community health centers, in collaboration with community based domestic violence prevention programs can play an important role in addressing these barriers, promoting prevention, and providing a bridge to ongoing support as needed. Farmworkers, including those experiencing IPV, HT, and exploitation, have also faced barriers to accessing health care services and vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic. Collaborations between community health centers and community-based organizations such as Lideres Campesinas, who center the leadership and experiences of those most impacted by the pandemic, can improve access to safety and health care for farmworkers.
