2-Right of Access

Every individual has the right of access to the health services that his or her health needs require. The health services must guarantee equal access to everyone, without discriminating on the basis of financial resources, place of residence, kind of illness or time of access to services.

An individual requiring treatment, but unable to sustain the costs, has the right to be served free of charge. 

Each individual has the right to adequate services, independently of whether he or she has been admitted to a small or large hospital or clinic.

Each individual, even without a required residence permit, has the right to urgent or essential outpatient and inpatient care. 

An individual suffering from a rare disease has the same right to the necessary treatments and medication as someone with a more common disease.
