Unemployment is an important social determinant of health. The ongoing pandemic has pervasive effects on society including on the economy. To what extent these effects also impact labor market entry among young people is hence a weighty public health issue. This lecture will discuss this phenomenon, including its drivers, possible consequences, and potential remedies. It shall also address implications for policy makers and welfare actors.
