This aim of the study is to explore the impact of health on economy growth in Malaysia over the period from 1985 until 2015. The data series of variable Life expectancy, Infant Mortality Rate, Fertility Rate and Health Expenditure are to examine their relationship between Gross Domestic Product. Furthermore, this study attempts to examine the best Model using Multiple Linear Regression (MLR). From the findings, it reveals that not all these variable have a significant relationship towards Gross Domestic Product. The results indicate that life expectancy, infant mortality rate, fertility rate are significant with gross domestic product. Meanwhile, health expenditure is not significantly with Gross domestic Product. This paper is useful for government in stabilizing the allocation of fund and provide better health infrastructure.
