Aging

By 2035, the population of older adults in Israel is projected to increase by almost 80%. This growth will require Israeli society to make appropriate adjustments to its social policies and services to meet the health care, social, and economic needs of older adults and their families.

The COVID-19 pandemic presented a further, special challenge to the older adult population, which has been defined as an at-risk population. The studies in our 2021 research program will include a special focus on the COVID-19 crisis as MJB's Research Team on Aging continues to make a significant contribution to national efforts to develop effective policies and services to address these challenges.
