The right to privacy is one of the most important rights that have a strong link with the moral rules and human dignity. Its aim is the elevation of the human personality and honoring his material and spiritual integrity. The origin of this right is the human rights standards; it is necessarily existent for all persons in any situation and conditions and has been protected by law. Criminal protection of patients’ privacy is of an increasing importance due to their specific physical and mental states in the process of treatment. Thus the privacy of patients is divided into different kinds among which, the bodily, mental, physical and informational privacies may be mentioned. In this paper, it has been tried to explain each of them and to examine the criminal support enforced by the legislator on this right.
