The terms of 'right to health' is not so much popular compared to human rights. Most of the time, people more concern about the implementation of right to health (i.e. national health insurance, health care, etc.) without knowing the concept of right to health itself comprehensively. In Indonesia, if we look at Human Rights Watch (HRW) World Report, none of the recorded violations is particularly mentioning the violations of right to health. It appears briefly two possibilities: is it the right to health that has not been aware of or has Indonesia fulfilled its obligation towards it so Indonesia is free from such violation? This research aims to discover the development of health rights in Indonesia after twenty years of reformation. This research using qualitative method-study of literature. The structure will be divided into four segments: the introduction; the method that will explain the framework I use to guide the research; the result and discussion; and last is my conclusion. I conclude that after reformation, Indonesia has acknowledged the right to health that can be witnessed through some of its national programs. These programs are proofs that Indonesia put attention to this right even though imperfectness of the implementation cannot be denied as well. This research also notes that right to health is a basic right of human rights thus the fulfillment should be soon fulfilled. It also notes that other stakeholders' role will help and catalyze such fulfillment if cooperating with the government.
