Migrant Health Monograph Series

The National Advisory Council on Migrant Health (Council) was formed under the 1972 Federal Advisory Committee Act. The Council is mandated to make annual recommendations to the Secretary of Health and Human Services regarding the health and health care needs of migrant and seasonal farmworkers in the United States. The members are comprised largely of farmworkers who also serve as governing board members of local federally-funded migrant health care programs. As such, the Council offers a practical knowledge about the health and health care of farmworkers, which is vital to the development and implementation of effective federal farmworker health policy.

Entering the new millennia, the Council sought an opportunity to create a publication that would address both the pervasive and new migrant health issues, and that would reflect the recommendations made in 2000. The result of this effort is the Migrant Health Monograph Series published in April of 2002. This Monograph Series consists of 10 monographs on health topics supporting the 2000 Recommendations in their content. Specialized experts in each of the topic areas were identified and contracted to write the monographs. Each monograph contains a full bibliography that will aid researchers or those interested in learning more about a specific migrant health issue. In addition, as the monographs are not a bound document, interested parties can print or obtain copies of monographs specific to their area of interest. The series includes the following papers:
