Israel's health care system is a world leader in delivering quality health care. Still, the system faces major challenges with regard to morbidity, accessibility and availability of services, infrastructure and staffing, and the organization of the health service system. These challenges have become even more acute in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
