ABSTRACT
The article informs that according to an analysis of the health-related legal challenges based on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, even failed bids can prove beneficial. According to Colleen Flood, scientific director, Canadian Institutes of Health Research's Institute of Health Services and Policy Research, some of the successful cases are ultimately underenforced, whereas some unsuccessful cases lead to policy changes favoring the litigants.
