Abstract: This paper contributes to the empirical literature by investigating globalization as a channel of health gap between Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) during the period 1980-2009 and draws out some policy implications. To control for the endogenity problem, Arellano – Bond (1991) General Method of Moments (GMM) estimator is used. The empirical results show that globalization has insignificant impact on the health gap between OECD and SSA. The result is consistent with some previous studies on the impact of globalizaton on developing countries. Keywords: Globalization, Health Gap, life expectancy at birth, dynamic panel data
