The Netherlands became the first country in the world formally to legalise euthanasia.

There are at least 3,000 plus "assisted deaths" a year, representing about 2.3 per cent of all deaths. Although termination of life on request has technically remained a criminal act, it was permitted in practice if doctors fulfilled strict criteria set out in a 28-point reporting procedure.

Euthanasia is effectively decriminalised in Switzerland, Colombia and Belgium, but no country has actually legalised the practice. It is illegal in the United States, although voters in the state of Oregon approved doctor-assisted suicide for the terminally ill in 1994.
