Abstract

Health and economic growth indicators are important indicators used in the policy-making process. For this reason, the effect of health indicators on economic indicators is examined in the study. The data of 169 countries belonging to different income groups between 2000 and 2019 were analysed using panel data analysis. The findings show that the share of gross domestic product allocated to health has a positive effect on economic growth only in low-income countries, while this effect is negative in other income groups. It is seen that the increase in the amount of health expenditure per capita in the income group countries has a positive effect on economic indicators. Based on the relationships between indicators, the study findings provide evidence for policymakers to make long-term decisions.
