Georgian and foreign expert and the project co-coordinator Nino Kiknadze, with in the frameworks of the project, had elaborated the first part of the “Health Care Law” that contains the material about human rights, patients and doctors rights, public health care, health care financing and media communications.  
The Curriculum also contains materials about stigmas and social minority rights. “Law, Media and Health” project is still working to improve and polish the “health care law” curriculum.
