Default Report: Half of new HIV cases in Greece from 2009-2011 self-inflicted to get benefits

Half of new HIV cases in Greece self-inflicted for benefits | The Daily Caller
11/25/2013

Quote:
A case study contained within a lengthy World Health Organization report reviewing the health inequities among European countries says Greeks may be contracting HIV intentionally in order to go on public assistance.

According to the “case study” contained in the report “Review of social determinants and the health divide in the WHO European Region: final report,” while suicides, homicide, and thefts increased during the Greek economic crisis, so too did the rate of HIV infection — about half of which the report says were likely self-inflicted to obtain benefits.
It seems that I have grossly underestimated what a lot of people will do to get on the Dole.
