Abstract: There are several ideas about health policy. The purpose of this article is to describe the health-specific guiding ideas, planning and control mechanisms and objectives that explain the main thrust of thinking and action of the two currently most important policy conceptions. On the one hand, this is the conception of health policy as economic policy, and on the other hand the health sciences approach of health policy as health-based intervention policy. The differences between both concepts are not trivial and show fundamentally different ideas of the allocation and distribution of health goods and services. When choosing “for or against” the “right” health policy approach, these systemic differences must be adequately taken into account.
