Introduction: The right to health is one of the fundamental concepts of development that has  a significant relationship with other human rights and everyone is entitled to reach the highest standard  of  physical  and  mental  health.  However,  the  history  of  the  activities  and  actions  of  governments  as  well  as  public  rights  regulating  public  health  regulations  indicates  a  lack  of  the  existence  of  the  necessary  and  comprehensive  knowledge  of  the  institutions  referred  to  in  the  public  health  area,  as  well  as  the  lack  of  attention  to  the  challenges  and  requirements  of  governments  in  regulating  citizens’  general  health,  and  the  intervention  of  the  thought  of  governments in defining the policy of combating crime and deviations in this range. Therefore, the  aim  of  this  study  was  to  review  the  concepts  of  thought,  the  right  to  health,  and  the  legislative policy in the field of health. This study was carried out, using a documentary and library method in 2018.
Conclusion: Access  to  health  services  with  the  aim  of  promoting,  protecting,  and  securing  people’s health is the right of all humans. The obligation of governments to respect the right of all humans to the right of health is evident in world constitutions and statutes. However, with regard  to  the  legal  characteristics  and  the  principles  that  relate  to  the  right  to  public  health,  governments are faced with challenges in regulating this issue. The findings show that the right to health and the obstacles and challenges of governments in defining legislative policy, especially the role of the ideology governing it, have been neglected. Therefore, legislation in the field of health should be exempted without consideration of the ruling of the country.
