UTJ member blocked dental schools from providing proper care for children

In this report about recent developments in the Israeli dental world, one researcher reveals how a member of United Torah Judaism sabotaged efforts to conduct effective research:
As for the other damaging policy, she names the program initiated by then-deputy health minister (United Torah Judaism) MK Ya’acov Litzman to provide basic dental care to children. The cheap remuneration per child, says Houri-Haddad, induces many health fund dentists to “over-treat” so they can charge extra for dental care not included in the basic basket. As private pediatric dental specialists were kept out of the program because they are more expensive, some have gone out of business, she continues. In addition, she says, Litzman did not allow researchers at either of the dental schools to conduct objective research and find out if the program was successful in improving children’s dental health, even though such a study was offered by the Jerusalem dental school.

Litzman worried only about getting credit from his own sector of ultra-Orthodox Jews, but it did not necessarily serve them as it should. There could be better ways to spend the tens of millions of shekels each year,” she adds.
That's no way to care for anybody's health, and Litzman should be ashamed of himself for being so opposed to making advancement's in health research. He was most definitely unsuited to the post for the health ministry.
