Introduction: Globalization is today one of the issues that has challenged many countries. As rapid growing the health in the world, this study is the first to examine the effect of economic, social and political components of globalization on the life expectancy of men and women in Iran.
Materials and Methods: This study was a descriptive-analytical and applied study using time series data with a macroeconomic approach. The economic, social, and political components of globalization data are all extracted from the KOF and other data from the World Bank, covering the period 1979 to 2018. The models are estimated in Stata 14 software using quantum regression method.
Results: According to the comparison of the obtained results, it can be seen that the social index of globalization and then the economic index of globalization has a significant effect on the life expectancy of men compared to women in Iran. But the political index of globalization has not had a significant effect. Also, the effect of the globalization index of globalization on men's life expectancy has been calculated more than twice the effect of this index on women's life expectancy.
Conclusion: Due to the greater susceptibility of men's life expectancy than women, it is suggested that the role of women in social issues be seen to the extent necessary, and especially by enriching women's lives, increase their sense of hope and social usefulness. On the other hand, creating a culture of using the social necessities of globalization, strengthening economic integration in the economic process of globalization, improving health and increasing the life expectancy of men and women in Iran is strongly recommended.
