The purposes of this paper are (a) to illustrate patterns of development of not only public expenditures on education and health sectors, indicators of human development, and poverty indicators in Central Java province, (b) to identify and analyze the role of the Human Development Index (HD!) with regards to the relationship between government spending for education and health sectors and poverty reduction in the province: whether the Hal as a moderator variable or intervening variable. The data used were government expenditures in education and health sectors, HDI and regional poverty rates in 35 districts / cities in Central Java, in the period of 2007 to 2008. The study suggests that (a) in general, in the year 2007 and 2008, government spending patterns in education and health sectors, HD1 and the percentage of the number of poor in the regencies / cities demonstrated a positive trend. That is, the increase in government spending on education and health sectors was followed by not only an increase in HIM but also by a decrease in the percentage of the population is the poor. Interestingly, the study suggests that HD! was more dominant to be a "pure moderator" variable rather than to be an intervening variable. This infers that the relationship between government spending on education and health sectors and the alleviation of poverty is reinforced by the role of HDI. Consequently, government spending on education and health sector did not by itself affect the poverty reduction directly.
