Senior Health Ministry officials have spent “several years” producing a 132- page, comprehensive online booklet in Hebrew on residents’ rights in the health system, according to the ministry, which says the book is “the first of its kind.”

But The Jerusalem Post has revealed that for the last four years, nonprofit organization Kol Zchut has been providing a huge amount of information on many of the same subjects – in Hebrew, Arabic and English – on a regularly updated free Internet portal that often goes beyond the ministry material.

Deputy Health Minister Ya’acov Litzman and his director-general Prof. Ronni Gamzu extolled the ministry’s booklet, which is due to be published on its website on Wednesday.
