Biography

Giora Kaplan is a senior researcher at The Gertner Institute for Epidemiology and Health Policy Research where he heads the area of Psychosocial Aspects of Health. He was born in Argentina and has lived in Israel since 1966. He studied Sociology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv University, and holds a master’s degree in Management of Human Services from The Heller School for Advanced Studies in Social Welfare at Brandeis University. In addition, he has completed courses in statistics and epidemiology in both Israel and the U.S.A. He served for five years as a sociologist in the Israeli Air Force, and since 1975 has been a researcher in the health system. Giora's primary research interests include coping with illness, cultural aspects of health, social consequences of health policy, and consultation with the public regarding issues of health ethics and policy. Giora brings together his extensive experience in conducting population-based surveys with his aspiration to reflect the point of view of health care consumers and the perceptions and expectations of different population groups.
