Health reform in Israel: some aspects of seventy years of struggle (1925--1995) Academic Article uri icon


  • SUMMARY This work traces attempts to bring about the passage of a compulsory health insurance law in Israel—from initial efforts in 1925 to the actual passage of such legislation in 1995. It examines the course of events in historical perspective, documenting positions adopted by various bodies—governmental, political, quasi-political, professional, and other— at various stages, clarifying why early initiatives failed. Most of this work is founded on historical archival documents found in London and Israel
