Right to health care

The changes in contemporary health care systems pose questions about the meaning and consequences of the right to health care. This right to health care is based on various perspectives: the international and national dimension, the role of different legal principles and the function of the courts, as well as the organisational dimension. The main theme of this study is the realisation of the right to health care as part of national medical expenses legislation in a number of Central and Eastern European countries, such as Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland. These studies analyse the legal reforms and their impact on the right to health care.
