The research project has been carried out by Georgian coalition human rights in health care was the first attempt to evaluate Georgian government implemented health projects from the Human Rights standpoint, for strengthen capacity of key policy- and decision-makers of the country for informed decision making and contributing in promotion and protection of human rights in health. Considerable legal framework has been developed for protection of human rights in healthcare recently, which is well harmonized with modern, widely accepted international standards and included national legislation as well as various international legal instruments ratified by the country. However, the reality shows that all these efforts, unfortunately, were not effective in leading to widespread knowledge and understanding of the value of human rights in the patient groups and health care professions or at organizational levels.
