We did it!…but actually it’s just the beginning.
The panel we conducted at the 13th Sderot Conference for Society, in November , “The State’s Responsibility for the Quality of Life of the Sick and Elderly”, was a significant step towards increasing awareness about the subject and towards influencing policy makers in the health field and in the Knesset.
