Introduction: This study aimed at investigating the effect of good governship on public health expenditure in Iran
 
Materials and methods: This research is an analytical study about good governance and health expenditure from 1994 to 2014 in Iran, data was gathered from World Development Indicators (WDI) from World Bank database. This study is an analysis of the Swoop and Raj Kumar model, the technique was ordinary least squares (OLS) and the Eviews software was used to analyze the data.
 
Findings: The results showed a negative relationship between under 5-year children mortality rate and GDP when there is no control over corruption is less than 5 years. By increasing corruption control index by 0.01 under 5-year children mortality rate would decrease by 0.11 percent.
    
Discussion and conclusion: The results show that when the level of corruption is low or corruption control index goes up, under 5-year children mortality rate would reduce and the life expectancy increased. The results emphasize that health spending increases are less likely to improve the health status unless considering corruption control index.
