Health Infrastructure, Demographic Transition and Growth
Empirical studies show that the fertility rate (mortality rate) exhibits an inverted u-shaped dynamic in some countries, while it decreases monotonically in other countries. This paper formulates the concept of public health infrastructure and constructs a growth model that replicates various historically observed patterns of fertility and mortality rates.
