About 50% Of New Greek HIV Cases Are SELF-INFLICTED TO RECEIVE €700 Per Month Benefits

Half Of New Greek HIV Cases Are Self-Inflicted To Receive €700 Per Month Benefits, Study Finds (ZeroHedge, Nov 25, 2013):

When one reads the following stunning, and tragic, excerpt from the World Health Organization’s recent report “Review of social determinants and the health divide in the WHO European Region: final report” what can one say but… Grecovery.

From the WHO:

Case study: countries’ experiences of financial crisis – Greece

Suicides rose by 17% between 2007 and 2009 and to 25% in 2010, according to unofficial 2010 data (398). The Minister of Health reported a further 40% rise in the first half of 2011 compared with the same period in 2010. Suicide attempts have also increased, particularly among people reporting economic distress (610). Homicide and theft rates have doubled. HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month and faster admission on to drug-substitution programmes. Prostitution has also risen, probably as a response to economic hardship. Health care access has declined as hospital budgets have been cut by about 40% (398) and it is estimated that 26 000 public health workers (9100 doctors) will lose their jobs (611). Further cuts are expected as a result of recent negotiations with the IMF and European Central Bank.

But at least they have the Euro.

  1. I live in the San Francisco bay area, I was born in San Francisco, and I have known many people who have ended up with AIDS. Some from unsafe practices sexually, others from contaminated blood transfusions, or dirty needles.
    Anyone who has ever seen an AIDS patient would know better than to do something so stupid. I find that very hard to believe. I would need to see several sources, and would still be skeptical……it sounds like a right wing propaganda fantasy.

  2. I read that article when you posted it, and I understand how desperate things are in Greece. Look at the poor stooges they have working in the Fukushima disaster……the world economy has been gutted by the greedy gut.
    But, AIDS? I would think they would opt for suicide, AIDS can provide a slow and painful death. The drugs to make the disease tolerable are very expensive, in the thousands of dollars. I don’t know what kind of medical system they have in Greece…….it is likely to be collapsing, like the rest of Greece.
    If I were that desperate, I would take my life and that would be it. Sure would not want to live the rest of my time in the hands of the medicine men and chemists, such as the sick get in this nation. I sure cannot imagine anyone choosing the long and painful death from AIDS.
    700 Euros is far too little, and who knows what will happen when the banksters cut off their government funds?
    It is dumb…….absurd. Maybe some people are that stupid, but I don’t see how they can survive, bad economy or not.
