Chapter Summary

This chapter gives a short review of youth problems in Croatia, and the ways in which youth nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and youth Church organizations deal with these problems. Reference will be made to some research on religiosity in Croatia, which was conducted on the youth population. The chapter focuses on young Catholics, since the Catholic population in Croatia encompass more than 90% of the population. Reference is also made to some examples of positive practice in youth issues, both inside the Church and inside the Croatian NGOs. Youth health problems in Croatia, that are perceived as more easily reachable if they are covered by informal youth organizations are that mainly connected to sexual and reproductive health and drug abuse harm reduction. The Government has started with the implementation of a new National Program of Action for Youth in 2001.
