However, a bad set of health policy framework, without firm control mechanisms, creating the possibility of making politically motivated protectionist decisions that will give the poor outcomes of health services. Following the health needs of patients in the period since 2005 to 2010 in the area of Zenica-Doboj Canton and behavior of specialist consultants, after making an poorly judged, politically motivated decisions, we found increased demands of patients within primary health care (PHC) and specialist health care (SHC), an increase in the number of hospital patients, increasing demands for diagnostic tests, and dissatisfied patients for an inefficient health service. In order to prevent the possibility of making such decisions, or unethical behavior of health professionals, it is necessary to establish clear regulatory mechanisms and responsibilities in society and the health system, such as strategic plans, bylaws and standards, with guidelines for good practice.

Key words: Health policy, health care needs of the population, protectionism, conformism.
