Why attend? | Speakers | Agenda | Price: Free

The relationship between money and health has never been more apparent. This is particularly true for younger generations. It is widely accepted that younger generations are less at risk of the viral effects of Covid-19. However, they are more at risk of economic insecurity and worsening long-term health, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Real wages have been plummeting for young people since 1997, while costs continue to increase. This event will explore the role that insurance can play alongside other solutions to protect the health and economic security of our most valuable asset, the next generation of workers.

Young people .jpgFor the first-time, long-term health problems are the largest single marker of economic inactivity, due to steep year-on-year rises in depression and mental ill-health. Mental health is a significant and growing problem for the economy, and the impact is not yet fully known. The pandemic and cost-of-living crisis are compounding the disadvantages already faced by younger generations. Not all demographics suffer equally. Economic and health inequalities are exacerbated for young people in minority groups and from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Given this starting point, it is no surprise that the young people of today are more likely to face financial precarity as they get older, rather than less. But what are the solutions, and how can the insurance industry help younger generations stay mentally, physically, and financially healthy in this brave new world? What is the role of the workplace and digital healthcare in preventing ill-health? Can access to better health data for insurers reduce health inequalities amongst the young?
