Commemorating the Journal’s tenth anniversary

In December 2021 the Israel Journal of Health Policy Research (IJHPR) completed 10 years of continuous publication, and the journal has published a cluster of three special articles to celebrate this milestone.

Bruce Rosen (the journal’s outgoing co-Editor in Chief) notes that the journal’s achievements include “attracting manuscripts from virtually all the Israeli institutions engaged in health policy research as well as many leading institutions abroad”.
Martin McKee (president-elect of the British Medical Association) observes that the IJHPR “is a unique attempt by scholars and practitioners in one small country to share their knowledge with the world and, in turn, to learn from experience elsewhere”.
Richard Saltman (associate research director of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies) asserts that “The Journal’s ability to combine national and international perspectives on key issues… has developed a valuable new arena for research about the increasingly complex post-COVID future of health care systems.”

With the help of those who submit papers to the IJHPR, our peer reviewers, and our editorial board, we hope to make the IJHPR’s second decade even more successful.

The Israel National Institute for Health Policy Research will take responsibility for the article processing charge for commissioned commentaries and for other manuscripts that are clearly relevant to the Israeli health care system. Before completing submission, authors of manuscripts meeting these criteria should send the title and abstract of their manuscript to ijhpr3@gmail.com. Authors will then be informed whether the Institute will cover their article processing charge and provided with instructions.

Covid-19 vaccinations: national efforts and cross-national learning

IsCOVID vaccinerael is a recognized global leader in COVID-19 vaccination coverage. In an effort to enable other countries to learn from Israel’s success in this area, the Israel Journal of Health Policy Research has recently published a series of papers on this topic. The series began with an analysis of the factors that contributed to Israel’s rapid vaccination rollout. This was followed by commentaries from the United States, England, Canada, and Europe, in which each commentator explored lessons to be gleaned from the Israeli experience for his/her own country or region.

This article collection is a reflection of the IJHPR’s unique role in helping Israel learn from other countries and helping other countries learn from Israel.

Research in government and academia

 Making effective health policy requires expert knowledge of an ever-changing technological, epidemiological, social, and economic context. One important vehicle for integrating expert research into the policy process is through linkages and exchanges between researchers and government officials. A recent IJHPR special article brought together perspectives from leaders in this area from the US, the UK, and Israel. This was followed by a commentary adding a Canadian perspective, and a second commentary from the UK underscoring the importance of subject-matter context.
