Abstract: The present study examines the association between population health, FDI inflows and economic growth (GDP) in India for the period of 1990-2013 by using time series data and applied cointegration and vector error correction (VEC) model. Further, we have tried to find out causal relationship between population health, FDI inflows and GDP by Granger causality test. The findings of the cointegration test show that there is long-run relationship between population health, FDI inflow and GDP. The paper concludes in the following ways: If FDI and GDP will rise then there is no effect on population health in a positive and negative way. In contrast, if human capital will increase or decrease then FDI inflow and GDP will go in the same direction. The relationship between FDI inflow and GDP is vice-versa in India.
