Health

Health care is a basic need and right for everyone. Farmworkers face numerous challenges to good health and access to healthcare. These challenges include lack of transportation, long working hours, lack of sick leave, language, lack of familiarity with the U.S. health care system, and immigration status. 

Farmworker Justice strives to improve the health of farmworkers through its work in increasing farmworker access to healthcare, promoting health awareness and disease prevention, improving farmworkers' occupational health and safety, and bettering farmworker living and working conditions.
