抄録: Based on the cross-country data this paper brings out the inter-connections between economic growth, health and poverty. Economic growth enhances health measured in terms of life expectancy, which in turn contributes to economic growth positively. Though both higher growth and improved health are expected to reduce poverty, the effect of economic growth on poverty appears to be statistically insignificant. Access to improved water, education and better health facility at the time of birth show positive effect on life expectancy, which in turn reduces the consumption poverty. Investment in basic amenities and improvement in education and health facility are the two important policy considerations, which follow from the analysis.
