Researchers have found new evidence that Greece’s financial crisis is taking a toll on the health of its citizens, including rising rates of HIV, tuberculosis, suicides and even infant deaths. The medical charity Doctors of the World confirmed the Greek financial crisis has had a devastating impact on health. In response, the group has doubled the number of programs it runs in Greece since the crisis began. Though the charity originally started its operations in Greece to mainly treat vulnerable foreign populations like refugees, deputy director Nathalie Simmonot said they are increasingly treating ordinary Greek citizens with no other means of getting health care.
