    About This Project

    In the United States, 1 child dies of injuries sustained during farm work every 3 days. Protective social policies could reduce the incidence of these injuries and improve the health of over 700,000 child farmworkers, largely from low-income families. Using an innovative systems-change approach, we will work alongside community partners in the Midwest to study the health impacts of occupational hazards on child farmworkers and develop sustainable policies to protect them.
