AIDS in Greece.



While Greece ranks among European countries with the lowest rate of AIDS, at least 689 AIDS cases and an estimated 10,000-15,000 people are nonetheless infected with HIV in the country. Despite the specter of a growing AIDS epidemic in Greece, the AIDS information campaign began in the mid 1980s no longer exists and the National Committee for AIDS has been replaced by the National Agency for Infectious Diseases. Health care professionals voice concern over the need to control blood products imported from Europe, while broad debate exists over whether or not to create special hospital units in which to treat people with AIDS. Further, HIV and AIDS have sparked the discussion and study of sexuality and its sociocultural dimensions; the Ministry of Education has prepared a program for prevention and health promotion to be used in schools; and AIDS/HIV support groups are gradually emerging.
