Abstract: This paper examines the impact of decentralization of the public health system on health state of the population by means of an adequate econometric model and data series at development regions level measured by two global indicators, namely infant mortality and life expectancy. The results point out that the number of beds and physicians by 1,000 inhabitants – as two of the independent variables considered – have a positive contribution to the health state, while the effects of decentralization have a pretty low visibility.
