Health and Social Security

Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)

Abstract

This chapter provides evidence that population health in the Emerging European Economies (EEE) lagged behind the EU average before the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. We then assess the direct health impacts of the pandemic in the EEE and how they differed from other European countries. We also offer early evidence on Covid-19 vaccination rates in the EEE.We analyse the policy responses of governments to mitigate the consequences of the Covid-19 shock and discuss the pandemic’s indirect impacts on health and social security. Finally, we draw conclusions for health policy.
