Hellenic health authorities have reported that the amount of HIV infected patients dropped last year, marking the first time since the beginning of the nation's economic crisis.
Keelpno, Greece's Center for Disease Control and Prevention, circulated its yearly report and confirmed that the nationwide number of new cases deceased to 920 infections in 2013, compared to 2012's amount of 1,188. This was partly due to a dip in the amount of instances connected with drug use.
Greek austerity measures have hindered the country's public health sector, as many health services were forced to downsize. In 2010, the yearly amount of HIV infections was marked at 610. Gay men were the largest quantity of newly admitted cases, while drug users were second.
