The purpose of this project is to implement the NIOSH Childhood Agricultural Injury Prevention Initiative (CAIP) by implementing recommendations from the 2001 Childhood Agricultural Injury Prevention Summit and the 1996 National Action Plan. Through this Initiative, NIOSH will: (1) assume a leadership role in federal efforts to prevent childhood agricultural injuries; (2) develop a grant/cooperative agreement program needed to identify and implement effective prevention strategies (three cooperative agreements and 31 grants have been funded to-date); and (3) establish a National Childhood Center to assist in disseminating promising research findings and translating these findings into plain and easy to understand language for practitioners and farm families. The goal of the NIOSH CAIP Initiative is to increase effective childhood agricultural injury prevention strategies and expand federal cooperation in this area to reduce childhood agricultural injuries.
