SHARE Israel has been repeatedly consulted by the Israeli government to assist with scientific information regarding health and ageing. For example, information based on the SHARE Corona Surveys about the social, health and economic effects of the Corona pandemic on senior citizens in Israel was provided to the Ministry for Social Equality and Senior Citizens. Another consultation by members of the ministry included SHARE findings on loneliness in the shade of Corona and helped to formulate recommendations for policy and field interventions at the national level. Further, SHARE Israel assisted the ministry to assess the level of ageism with analyses age and gender discrimination in the labour market.
