As one of the fundamental health outputs in the health economics literature, the improvement of life expectancy is one of the variables that positively affect economic growth. Many papers, investigating the relationship between health expenditure and life expectancy indicated that life expectancy has a positive effect on health expenditures. This study aims to investigate the relationship between life expectancy and health expenditures for the period of 2000-2015 in Turkey, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Panel data approach was used for the study. The results of panel cointegration analysis indicate that there is a significant bidirectional long-term relationship between the two variables.

Sağlık ekonomisi literatüründe temel sağlık çıktılarından birisi olarak kabul edilen yaşam beklentisinin iyileşmesi, iktisadi büyüme performansını pozitif yönde etkileyen değişkenlerden birisidir. Dolayısıyla, hayat beklentisini belirleyen faktörlerin araştırılması ilgili literatürdeki birçok araştırmanın konusu olmuştur. Bu araştırmaların bir bölümünde yaşam beklentisinin sağlık harcamalarını pozitif yönde etkilendiğine dair bulgular elde edilmiştir. Söz konusu bulgular, sağlık politikalarının belirlenmesinde veri olarak kullanılmaktadır. Bu çalışmanın amacı, 2000-2015 dönemine ait veriler kullanılarak, Türkiye, Azerbaycan, Kazakistan, Kırgızistan, Tacikistan Türkmenistan ve Özbekistan’da sağlık harcamaları ile yaşam beklentisi arasındaki ilişkiyi analiz etmektir. Çalışmada panel veri analizi yöntemi tercih edilmiştir. Panel eş bütünleşme testi sonuçları, iki değişken arasında anlamla çift yönlü uzun dönemli ilişkilerin varlığını göstermektedir.
