The California Endowment, a private statewide health foundation, distributed $10.5 million in grants, ranging from $250,000 to $500,000, to thirty community based organizations, clinics, and health systems in California as part of an initial phase of its Agricultural Worker Health Initiative. In an effort to inform the subsequent phase of the initiative, case studies were conducted on eight distinct agricultural worker health interventions, in different regions of California in the areas of primary care, oral health, and mental health. Three of the eight programs had a primary care intervention, three had an oral health intervention, and two had a mental health intervention. The case study methodology used included logic modeling, group interviews with program staff members, and focus groups with agricultural worker program participants in order to understand each program's design, rationale, challenges, and promising practices
Program strategies and implementations varied across the case study grantees and included providing direct clinical services, conducting community screenings, using mobile health vehicles, promoting community health, and conducting community trainings. Staff varied among programs and consisted of monolingual, bilingual, and bicultural staff members. Some programs utilized agricultural workers as staff members, as volunteers, or as members of advisory boards. Five of the eight programs depended upon collaborative efforts in order to meet their objectives
Selected theoretical models, frameworks, and theories are presented in addition to the case studies that propose various implications for planning programs in agricultural workers health settings. Based on the activities and goals of these programs, the researcher believes that the Health Belief Model, Social Networks and Social Support framework, and the Spectrum of Prevention offer the greatest potential to help future agricultural worker health planners
