This paper talks about impacts of health spending on rural population. The data on impacts of health spending on rural households were collected in the hill rural area of Muhuta commune, in the Province of Rumonge. The core sample of villages was randomly selected from 4 zones of the commune with probability of proportional to the number of villages. The number of 200 households was drawn in four parts. The results show that health spending are causing farm and non-farm sources of income to collapse and thereby increasing poverty rates and food insecurity in rural households.
