This chapter, which examines the war-and-health relationship from 1960 to 1999 using disaggregated measures of health achievement, investigates the effects of conflict on fertility rates, infant mortality rates, and male and female life expectancies during this period, evaluating the regional differences in these relationships. The analysis reveals that the impact of war on the chosen measures of population health is not consistently significant in all the regions of the world, indicating that the intensity and duration of conflict affect regions and health indicators in different manners.

Keywords:   war, health achievement, fertility rates, infant mortality, life expectancies, regional differences
