In the health policy market, a group of people make the authoritative decisions and the other group pursue specific decisions to be made. It is a market with sellers (suppliers) and buyers (demanders). Both the suppliers and the demanders seek to reach positive and acceptable outcomes by reaping benefits and incurring costs (Longest, 2016).
The demanders include the individuals seeking policies that are pertinent to their own health and to the people they care for; and the individuals for whom these policies can result in other benefits such as economic benefits (Longest, 2016). Demanders are motivated by these wants and needs when participating in a political marketplace.
The suppliers, on the other hand, include the legislative, executive and judicial branches in a government since policies are made by these branches. The motivations of these branches, although their roles differ, can be the interest of the public and/or the self-interest such as seeking reelection, money, fame.(Longest, 2016).
Health policies are impacted by the capabilities of one group to influence the actions, behaviors and decisions of the other group (Longest, 2016).

Individuals, organizations and interest groups are people in pursuit of health or those who are after economic advantage. Interest groups refer to an organization of people with similar policy goals. There are more than 23,000 non profit interest groups. Interest groups are essential to policy making because they serve as a vehicle for individual members to find a way to voice their policy demands into a unified voice that in return influences the making of health policies. The suppliers of health policies are the following: Elected officers/legislators, executive and bureaucrats, and judiciary. The objective of both suppliers are demanders of health policy is for these major players to reach a mutually satisfying and beneficial arrangement.
