In 2000, the UN issued the General Comment No.14 "Right to Health" which expands upon Article 12 of the Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. The General comment explores the historical context of this right, further defining the meaning of an adequate health care system, detailing obligations of states and NGOs, defining violations, and discussing the basics of implementation.
