Expenditure performance in health, education, and infrastructure can be used to
encourage and improve the welfare of society through economic growth. Economic

development to achieve better public welfare.The purpose of the study was to analyze (1)
the effect of simultaneous and partial health, education and infrastructure spending on
people's welfare in districts/cities in Maluku Province, (2) to analyze the economic
growth can mediate the relationship between health, education and infrastructure
spending on people's welfare in the Maluku Province. This research is a quantitative
research usingpath analysis.The study results showed that (1) spending on health and
education directly has a significant effect on people's welfare in districts/cities in Maluku
Province. In contrast, direct infrastructure spending has an insignificant effect on
community welfare in districts/cities in Maluku Province. Therefore, natural economic
growth has an insignificant effect on people's welfare in districts/cities in Maluku
province. (2) Government spending, namely health and infrastructure spending, indirectly
has an insignificant effect on economic growth, while education spending indirectly has a
significant influence on economic growth in districts/cities in Maluku province. Thus,
health, education, and infrastructure spending indirectly through economic growth have
an insignificant effect on social welfare; this shows that the variable economic growth is
not an excellentintervening variable for the health, education, and infrastructure spending
variable on the welfare of the district/city community in Maluku province.
