To this end,          Romer’s indogenous growth model, MG econometrics technique, PMG, FED were evaluated and based on Hausman’s test, the appropriate model was chosen. The based on cointegration panel method and through FMOLS and DOLS estimates, the long-term relationships were derived taking cross-sectional correlation. Finaly, PMG causal test was performed.
Results: Based on the findings, both private and public health expenditures had a positive and significant effect on workerforce efficiency in the provinces of Iran, and effectiveness of public health expenditures was higher than that of the private sector. Moreover, the results of the PMG causality test indicated that there was a long-term causal relationship between public and private health expenditures toward workerforce efficiency.
