By 2035, Israel's elderly population is projected to increase by almost 80%, a growth that will challenge Israeli society to make appropriate adjustments to its social policies and services to meet the health care, social, and economic needs of this population and their families. MJB's Center for Research on Aging contributes significantly to national efforts to develop effective policies and services to address these challenges.
