National Index for Optimal Aging

In July 2021, the Israeli government adopted a map of national indices for optimal ageing [1]. This provides Israel’s ministries and agencies with a shared set of indices for determining and measuring levels of optimal aging among Israeli citizens. The dashboard will help to guide policy making, budget allocation and program development. SHARE data will be used to monitor these indices across time. Guided by this map, large-scale initiatives were developed, focusing on minimizing health, social and financial risk among older adults. Overall, they aim to increase older adults’ independence.
