About the IAC Program:
The Increase Access to Care for Ag Workers (IAC) Program is a learning collaborative that goes hand in hand with the Ag Worker Access 2020 Campaign, a national initiative launched in 2015 to increase access to quality healthcare for America’s Agricultural workers and their families. The IAC Program was designed to assist health centers in accurately identifying, registering and reporting their patients.
Our Program members include Primary Care Associations (PCAs), Health Care Controlled Networks (HCCNs), and Health Centers (HCs). Our common goal for the Increase Access to Care Program is to continue to increase access to care for Agriculture workers in their service areas through sharing of knowledge, tools, and resources.
