    • Abstract:
      The current paper examines the relationship between health financing (public and out-of-pocket health financing), CO emission and health outcomes in 35 Sub-Saharan African countries for the period of 1995-2012. The panel unit root and cointegration tests are conducted as pre-tests, followed by the estimation of the parameters using the FM-OLS and DOLS techniques. The findings of the study show the importance of public health financing as one of the major factors that lead to better health outcomes, whereas the out-of-pocket expenditure is found to be harmful to population health since it leads to increase under-5 mortality rate. Although the results show a negative relationship between CO and health outcomes, still these results remain inclusive. In addition, the findings reveal the importance of socioeconomic factors such as income and education as key determinants of health outcomes. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
