The Ministry of Absorption, together with the Ministry of Development of the Negev and Galilee, approved a package of grants for new repatriates who decide to live and work in the northern and southern peripheral regions of the country.
The grants are aimed at stimulating medical workers and engineers to live in the periphery of Israel. The need to stimulate the influx of specialists appeared in connection with the impending shortage of health workers, which should affect the whole country and, in particular, its periphery.
According to the Deputy Director General Ministry of Health, Dr. Sefi Mendlovich, the next three years will be a critical period, and Israel may well face a severe shortage of doctors from 2026 to 2030.
Aliyah and Integration Minister Pnina Tamano-Sh ata added: “The new grant package is only part of a broader process to encourage the repatriation of trained professionals from the medical and engineering fields to Israel's periphery. I am sure that this will help strengthen the economy and the health care system in these regions, which are in dire need of qualified assistance.
