    Abstract

    This second chapter examines whether increasing health aid improves health outcomes; especially in reducing the incidence of malaria in selected developing countries, using the Arellano and Bond (1991) differenced GMM and the system GMM estimators proposed by Arellano and Bover (1995) and Blundell and Bond (1998, 2000). The findings suggest that increasing health aid does not improve health outcomes (reduce malaria).It further shows that, the impact of health aid on health outcomes are positive and significant only in countries with a good education system.
