[Perspectives] Orly Manor: public health leader in Israel’s health system

“Tikkun olam” translated from Hebrew means “to mend the world”, a maxim that has been at the heart of Orly Manor’s career. She is Professor of the Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and has been a leading figure behind the Lancet Series about health in Israel. Her current research activities are divided between two main projects: one evaluating the quality of treatment of Israeli health care, the other being a long-term project investigating the developmental origin of adult diseases.
