This website contains information on the 156 health centers that get federal funds to provide primary care to migrant and seasonal farmworkers regardless of immigration status. Most are part of community health centers that also receive additional federal funding to serve all low-income people. They offer services on a sliding fee scale.
The Immunization Initiative at MCN promotes improving childhood, adolescent, and adult immunization coverage levels among migrant and other mobile underserved populations. During the course of the initiative, anecdotal and documented evidence of an increase in the Hispanic indigenous population in United States and outside California surfaced from various sources. A separate initiative emerged, to design and develop a piece of educational material specifically for this population. This article, published in Streamline (March-April, 2009) discusses this initiative.
