Tiivistelmä:This study investigates the impacts of inequality in health on economic growth in countries where income is low or mediocre. The empirical part of the study uses an original cross-national panel data set gathered from 62 low and middle income countries over 1985-2007. A substantial and quite robust negative effect is found of health inequality on income levels and income growth controlling for life expectancy, country and time fixed-effects among other effects shown to matter for growth. The effect also holds when health inequality is instrumented to circumvent a potential problem of reverse causality. Thus, reducing inequality in health care and access to health information can make a significant contribution to economic growth.
