(2) HEALTH LEGISLATION AND PATIENTS’ RIGHTS

This programme is based on our deep conviction that no system without social control and regulation would work for people,and respect right to health and health care. The strategies to bring people and patients at the centre of health care, through policies and legislations need to be evolved in the specific situation of each country and society.
