Oral Health and Social Determinant of Health
Oral health is one of the greatest unmet health needs of migrant farmworkers.Poor oral health reduces quality of life and is related to the development and exacerbation of chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.In addition to the many barriers migrant workers face in accessing oral health care, a lack of knowledge about what contributes to good oral health, and a failure to understand good oral hygiene behaviors contribute to their well-documented poor oral health outcomes. Therefore, CHWCMR dedicades its effort to reduce oral health injustice using a CHW model.
