Annotation Important role in the improvement of medical care and the implementation of measures concerning health care belongs to the legal regulation of relations in this area, the law in particular. Despite the large number of different acts, the law of Ukraine on health is still not systematic. Today, legal provisions are scattered in different legal acts, which makes them difficult to apply in practice, reducing their effectiveness. Therefore, one of the most important issues of its organization is its systematization that is, resuming all the legal acts (or elements) in to one integral complex. It is also important to try to combine related legal rules in a single event that would systematically and comprehensively regulate the relations in this field. The author justifies the need for codification of legal acts in force in this area, and in particular the drafting and adoption of the Health Code and Sanitary Code of Ukraine.
Keywords healthcare, legislation, proposals to improve legislation, Health Code and Sanitary Code of Ukraine.
