Abstract

Israel is a relatively rapidly growing country with a high fertility rate and a young population. These data emphasize the importance of an efficient and appropriate pediatric service for its population. Although the pediatric service in Israel has attained several achievements, such as a relatively low infant mortality, high vaccination rates, and a primary care service that is mainly based on licensed pediatricians, several challenges, such as overcoming inequalities in health care and health indices between different regions and different populations within the country and the provision of a more organized mental and dental health care service to children, need to be addressed.
