Summary "The idea of a human right to health goes back at least to the constitution of the World Health Organisation of 1946 and is now firmly established both in international and domestic laws. 166 countries have ratified the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural rights, whose article 12 recognises a "right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health". An increasingly larger number of constitutions and other domestic laws also recognise the right to health in some form or another"-- Provided by publisher
