    Abstract:

    This study tries to know the impact of health and nutrition on the economic growth of Pakistan from 1980 to 2013. Child health and nutrition are strongly associated with educational achievement. Less developed countries like Pakistan suffer from poor health and nutrition, and the problems facing by women of childbearing age. For all these purposes, we apply the integration test innovation accounting approach to see the relationship between the variables. The recent study is a good effort and provides a new way to policymakers to solve the problems associated with health and nutrition. Pakistan’s health care system is facing various issues like lack of knowledge or efficiency to overcome these issues. To check the stationarity Unit Root is used. The autoregressive distributed lag approach is used among the variables.
