The Australian Centre for Value-Based Health Care is pleased to bring you the next webinar in our webinar series on 'Israel and the COVID-19 vaccine – understanding the success of the world’s fastest rollout.'

Israel has had the fastest COVID-19 vaccine rollout in the world.

Commencing in December 2020 and prioritising individuals aged 60 years or older, health care workers and individuals with underlying conditions for vaccination, as of 15 March 50% of Israel’s population had been fully vaccinated and 60% had their first dose.

While Israel’s relatively small size, both geographically and in population, offers benefits in managing a rollout, a wide variety of factors have contributed to the success of the program. These factors which range from central governance and planning to the use of the workforce and the relationships between health providers and the government, provide opportunities to consider both Australia’s vaccine rollout, and also to consider the lessons learned for better integrated and managed health programs into the future.

In this webinar, Dr Asher Salmon, Head of International Relations at the Israeli Ministry of Health will outline the factors that have made the Israeli program a success.
