Also, corruption control affects the mortality of children under one year with the coefficient of -35.3. Economic inequity and increasing government intervention in the economy have negative impacts on health indicators. Conclusion: Considering the negative impact of corruption on health, fundamental measures for moving towards good governance are required.
