(Chuncheon = Larose.VIP) Reporter Lee Hae-yong = Gangwon Province announced on the 25th that it will invest 10.7 billion won this year in a project to improve the farming environment for female farmers.

For the first time in the country, the province plans to support shingles vaccination for 3,000 female farmers aged 50 to 64.

This project aims to prevent diseases among female agricultural workers, who have become vulnerable due to long hours of outdoor activities and high-intensity working conditions, and provides support of 170,000 won per person.

In addition, we plan to expand the project to support 220,000 won per person for musculoskeletal disease screening fees for female farmers to Gangneung, Hoengseong, and Inje.

The province is expanding support for field toilets for female farmers from 10 last year to 91 this year.

In addition, support items to reduce the labor of female farmers were expanded to include multipurpose workbenches, mobile sprayers, and electric transport vehicles.

Seok Seong-gyun, director of the Agricultural Administration, said, “As women account for 50.7% of farmers in the province, we will discover and support various policies to create happy and equal rural areas on an equal footing with men.”
