Abstract

The present study aims to explore the impact of health on productivity, measured through earnings at both individual level and district level of Pakistan. For individual analysis health is measured by various nutrition intakes (calories, protein and vitamin A) and for district analysis health is measured by nutrition intake as well as through regional health facilities (number of beds per earners and basic health units per earners) by obtaining the data from Household Integrated Economic Survey 2010-2011 and from various Provisional Development of Statistics. The study concludes that health is foremost element to enhance the productivity level. The unequal distribution of nutrition intake and health facilities causes the earnings inequality, to narrow down this earning inequality there is a need for fair distribution of nutrition intake and health facilities.
