Long-Term Care in Croatia

The OECD used SHARE data (SHARE Waves 6 and 7), among others, to provide a comprehensive analysis of the long-term care (LTC) system for the elderly in Croatia. The work on this important challenge of our ageing societies is done in a cooperation with the Ministry of Labour, Pension System, Family and Social Policy which is also a coordinating ministry for the SHARE study in Croatia. The analyses should serve as informed source about LTC needs in Croatia, about the main actors in provision of care (formal and informal carers) as well as the economic, mainly financial, effects of possible LTC reform.
