The efforts of Community Health Clinics, Incorporated, to provide rural agricultural workers with a primary health care system are described. Sociological and agricultural data for this rural area in Southwestern Idaho are given. Baseline data regarding health and safety problems of native and migrant farmers, ranchers, and ranchworkers are discussed. The authors find that many subjective health and safety problems exist among the subject population. They recommend patient education and new methods to increase clinician interest in occupationally related accidents and illnesses as feasible ways of reducing health and safety problems among rural agricultural workers.
