[Correspondence] Health equity in Israel – Authors’ reply
We thank the correspondents for their thoughtful comments. All respondents were critical of the fact that our Series paper1 did not address Palestinian health or give adequate expression to the problem of health disparities. As we mentioned, the purpose of the Series was to assess the Israeli health-care system that offers comprehensive, publicly funded, and administered care to all legal residents, including Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs. Our introductory paper to this ten-paper Series was meant to offer an overview of the relevant subjects and we could not be expected to cover each in depth.
