Knesset Committee to Discuss Health Care Crisis


The Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee will hold a special recess session on Wednesday in order to discuss the crisis in the health care system. Deputy Health Minister Ya'akov Litzman will participate in the discussion, along with Director General of the Health Ministry Roni Gamzu, Treasury officials, and representatives of interns and doctors.

MK Haim Katz (Likud), chairman of the Committee, said that he hoped the session would help bridge gaps between the sides and prevent the planned mass resignation of interns, “or at least postpone it until after the holidays.”
