Health law and legislation have gained significance in the international community for decades, particularly from the World Health Organization (WHO). During the thirtieth World Health Assembly in 1977, 1 the WHO committed itself to several important health goals, including a more efficient organization of health services; the provision of primary healthcare to needy populations; and the improvement and protection of individual and community health. In the same document, the WHO decided to strengthen its program in health law (Khoury et al . 2000 ; WHO 1977 ; Jennings et al . 2003 ).
