This paper examines the synergistic effect of government health spending and institutional quality on health capital accumulation in WAEMU countries over the period 2000-2015. By using two stage least squares (2SLS), we find that in addition to the positive effect of public health spending and institutional quality on the accumulation of health capital, these two variables have a synergistic effect. These results suggest that maximizing returns from government health spending requires improving of the institutional quality.
