  1. Migrant farm workers'access to pesticide protection and information : Cultivando Buenos habitos campaign development.

    Article - En anglais

    Formative evaluation of south Georgian migrant farm workers'access to information and products to promote pesticide protection and understanding of cancer risk associated with pesticide exposure was conducted using field observation, in-depth interviews of Georgia's Migrant Health Program's outreach workers, and structured face-to-face surveys of migrant farm workers.

    The data indicated that fewer than one-third of the pesticide products reviewed contained messages about pesticide use and exposure risk for humans.

    Risk information on products appeared in English only.

    Few protective devices were available for purchase.

    Migrant farm workers were aware in a very general sense of health risks posed by pesticides, but they were specifically unaware of the reach of pesticides sprayed, as illustrated by their field behaviors.

    Findings also demonstrated the need to educate outreach workers about migrant farm workers'cancer risk, so that they may act as migrant farm workers'health advocates to reduce the adverse effects associated with pesticide exposure.
