This paper proves evidence for nonlinearities in the relationship between health and economic growth. Employing the data-sorting method of Hansen (2000), it is shown, based on a cross-section data of 83 countries, that health, considered as a stock then as a flow, is a threshold variable and a plausible source of multiple regimes. Furthermore, our estimates suggest that the impact of health on economic growth changes dramatically from one regime to another.
