Listed author(s):

We analyze the relationships between health expenditure, education and several indicators of human well-being in Africa and Asia. The aim is to suggest some priority measures addressed to increase international cooperation and domestic policies successful to improve health expenditure and quality of life accordingly to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The conclusions show that the main way to improve health expenditure is to increase expenditure on education. The beneficial effects of education on health include both preventive measures addressed to avoid malnutrition, water contamination and other negative circumstances, and curative measures through more quantity and quality of health services.
