This descriptive-analytical study is based on library analysis of legal regulations and jurisprudence. Therefore, the present study did not have a definite sampling because of its qualitative nature.
This right is supported by jurisprudential rules such as the rule of no-harm, casuality and loss, and there are precise enforcement guarantees in jurisprudence that can serve as a general basis for blood transfusion and blood products, and in Iranian law as well. The right basis is found, and this right is specifically mentioned in the Statute of the Organization and in the Executive By-Law of the Activities of Blood Banks and Blood Consumer Centers.
Ultimately, about the consumer of blood products, the right to health has been acknowledged as the institution of blood monitoring and care.
