Israel Journal of Health Policy Research seeks to promote intensive intellectual interactions among scholars and practitioners from Israel and other countries regarding all aspects of health policy, health services research, public health, health promotion, health economics, health care management, and the ethics, sociology, and political science of health care in Israel. The ultimate aim of these intellectual interactions is to contribute to the development of health policy in Israel and around the world. The Israeli health care system is considered to be among the most innovative, advanced, and efficient in the world, and accordingly generates a great deal of scholarly interest and activity. The quantity, quality, and sophistication of Israeli health services research is unusually impressive relative to the number of professionals in the field. This journal seeks to disseminate information about the achievements and dilemmas of Israeli health care, to facilitate dialogue between experts from Israel and elsewhere, and to enhance the extent to which Israel and other countries can learn from one another's health systems. Article selection is guided by considerations of scientific merit and potential contribution to Israeli health care and health systems around the world. Thus, the typical article will report on a new study regarding an important feature of Israeli health care and explore the implications of the study's finding for Israel as well as other countries. The journal also has a particular interest in comparative studies involving Israel and other countries and in-depth, comparative, analyses of Israeli data from multi-national studies.
