This paper analyzes the effect of quality and accessibility of health services and other public infrastructure on the health of children in rural Pakistan. It also explores whether local infrastructure substitutes or complements mothers education and household wealth in the production of child health. The analysis is done separately for boys and girls since there are known to be large gender disparities in human capital investment in Pakistan. The results suggest that access and quality of community health facilities tends to substitute for household wealth and mothers education in the production of child health. On the other hand, public health infrastructure such as piped water and sanitation tends to complement mothers education in the production of child health.
