The right to assistance extends to health care, and any person, whatever his legal status, should enjoy access to appropriate care. However, experience shows that, in reality, the implementation of this law is based primarily on the political will of communities to develop networks of care activities adapted to the target population, which, more often, find themselves in precarious situations (the elderly, the unemployed, refugees, etc.) Based inter alia on the principles of equivalence of care and solidarity, this approach to community medicine is part of a social care multi (financial, social and professional reintegration, etc.)For many years, "Fundamental Rights", often called "Liberties individual" or "rights of man myself," have been established and legally recognized (right to life and physical integrity, freedom personal right to equality, etc..), both in terms of Swiss law (federal constitutional law and federal case law, constitutional rights jurisprudence of the cantonal and district courts) and in terms of public international law (European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, European Social Charter, etc.)..Are there any rights that are guaranteed in the health field?
