    Human development is used as one of the most important indices to measure the level of countries development in resent decades. This study examines the effect of government health expenditure on human development index (HDI) by using the ordinary least squares method (OLS) over the period 1990-2009 in Iran. The results show a positive and significant elationship between government health expenditure and human development index. Also, Granger Causality Test indicates that there is no bilateral relationship between the government health expenditure and HDI in Iran.
