There are factors that shaped configuration and scope of the human right to health protection. One is the possibility of analyzing the history of this law through the jurisprudence of our national and international courts. In the case of Mexico, we have witnessed since June 2011 setting a new scenario that is relevant to the need to strengthen the judicial dialogue between national and international bodies, particularly the reception of jurisprudence emanating from the Inter-American Court of Human Rights Humans. The impact this will have on the protection of the right to health posed contexts in which they can build new ways of understanding this right. Therefore, the analysis proposed in this research is the historical and legal fabric of the right to health by revising the criteria of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights over the past 10 years (2004-2014). From this study it would be possible to see that the Court has developed a jurisprudential development for other interesting specifying the scope and content to protect the right to health.
