Tackling The Urban-Rural Health Care Divide: Times Of Israel Op-Ed

There are dramatic differences in health outcomes between those who live in most of central Israel and those on the country’s northern and southern periphery.  Addressing this disparity requires several solutions, including Yad Sarah’s “Home Hospital” program, recently introduced in Israel’s Southern periphery.
