This piece of research dissects the secondary data available with the government of Pakistan. The purpose of study was to ensure whether investing in health sector is useful or not. The tool for analyzing the data was linear regression model to seek the relationship between the dependence of rural and urban employment on health investment. Conclusively, the research shows that investments in health sector create more jobs in rural areas than in urban areas. The absence of investment in health sector in urban and rural areas causes reduction of 58% and 178% of employment level respectively. Hence, the governments of developing countries should increase investment in health sector to enhance productivity to address the problem of unemployment in these areas.
