Efficiency and Effectiveness of the Public System.

At Joint Elka, we work to maximize the ability of public systems in Israel to provide social services to the residents of the State of Israel in an efficient and effective manner.

Together with our partners in government, local and regional authorities, in the social and business sector, we work to identify system challenges and to drive change processes to improve them.

We believe that better systems, produce better services, enable a better life for everyone.


What are System Challenges?

When we talk about "system" we mean several organizations operating in one content arena. For example, the health system consists of the Ministry of Health, the health funds, health associations, early childhood welfare organizations, start-ups and business companies in the field of health etc.
A systemic challenge is a failure and a barrier in the system that repeats itself over and over again, making it difficult to provide services, frustrating service providers and recipients, and harming those who need them. These challenges are not unique to a specific social problem, but characterize a variety of problems and affect the entire public service system.

"When good people come up against bad systems, bad systems always win"
