Abstract: 

Generally women have higher levels of life expectancy which could roots from biological conditions. Also, they enjoy higher levels of healthy life expectancy rather than men but it seems that, they do not enjoy of much more healthy life expectancy (HALE) in spite of their longer longevity, especially in less developed and under developed countries. This issue has this to say that in these countries gender equality is not conducted and women rights are violated. In this study, the relationship between gender inequality and gender gap, in couple of years, has been studied. The study is a analytical and correlation study and needed data for HALE was drown upon WHO statistics. Gender equality data has been chosen from UN annual report which being reported in form of human development reports. The period of analysis was 2001 until 2004. Finally, for studying the relationship between two main variables, correlation test and regression analysis was used. These study findings indicate that there is a significant and positive relationship between women educational, economic and income indicators with gender gap in healthy life expectancy. But there is no significant relationship between gender gap in healthy life expectancy and women political indicators. Results of regression analysis indicated that education indicator is a significant predictor of gender gap in healthy life expectancy. The results of this study pose the importance of socio-economic variables in health.
