AGRICOH represents a formidable vehicle for studying cancer, respiratory, neurologic, and auto-immune diseases, reproductive and allergic disorders, injuries and mortality in association with a wide array of exposures in participating cohort studies and also in under-studied settings. To this end the consortium will strive to identify new participating agricultural cohorts in medium- and low-income countries.
AGRICOH is open to researchers interested in investigating health outcomes (e.g. cancer, respiratory illnesses, many others) in association with exposures present during farming and in the agricultural environment. Complete procedures describing decision-making on the pooling of data in support of proposed projects are being developed and will be posted on this website in the near future.
