Abstract: 

Objectives: In the past decades, the experience of many countries has shown that economic growth is not in itself a comprehensive measure of the evaluation of the improvement of people's life. Therefore, it is important to take into account, besides economic growth, other indices which involve important social and, especially, human variables. One of the most important indices is the Human development Index (HDI), the improvement of which provides, because of the effective role of manpower in the development programmes, a basis for access to sustainable development. With regard to the predicted goals and a view of the country on the 1404 horizon, it seems that putting more emphasis on and paying more attention to the human aspects of the development of provinces is essential, especially for provinces which face numerous limitations of other developmental sources. Accordingly, an attempt has been made in this study to evaluate the Human Development Index in Sistan and Baluchestan during the years 1996-2006.
Method: To carry out this study, we used an analytic-descriptive research method. The indices used were educational, hygienic, and income. The data were extracted from statistics annuals, and the provinces hygienic and education centers, during the years 1996-2006.
Findings: The findings of this study show that the HDI rose from 0.42 to 0.47 during the years that was the focus of this study. Although the HDI increase is slow, it is the result of the improvement of the indeces of life expectancy and training in Sistan and Baluchestan, despite the lowness of the province's income index.
Results: Income index could not contribute considerably to the process of HDI in Sistan and Baluchestan .Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the policies and approaches in order to increase income.
