The Taub Center mourns the passing of Prof. Dov Chernichovsky z”l
Author: Taub Center Staff
Dov was a member of the Taub Center team from the day the Center was founded in 1982. For years he worked vigorously to promote health and social issues in Israel in government, the media, and many other arenas.
Dov was Professor Emeritus of health economics and policy in the Department of Health Administration at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and was the chair of the Israeli Nutritional Security Council. Just a few months ago, he was appointed by Minister of Health Yuli Edelstein to serve as a member of the National Health Council of the Ministry of Health.
Dov served on many public committees, including the State Commission of Inquiry that led to the enactment of the National Health Insurance Law. He published numerous articles at the Taub Center and in leading scientific journals, and served on the board of several such journals. Among other topics, Dov was a leading voice on the issues of long-term care and the financing of Israel’s healthcare system, and has worked hard for equality in access to the health system and food security.
May his memory be a blessing.
