Israeli doctors despondent over marginalization of health as campaign issue

The Israel Medical Association – despondent that the pressing issues of health are being ignored in the current Knesset election campaign – is launching a media effort demanding that the government spend NIS 9 billion more on medical care.

The publicity campaign will encompass billboards, the social media and others to place healthcare “on the agenda not only when functioning of hospital emergency rooms threaten to collapse.”

So far, health issues have been all-but-forgotten by the parties in the election campaign.
