Greece got in a terrible economic and financial crisis at the beginning of the 21st century. As a result, some serious cuts were made by the Greek government. Deep cuts were made to healthcare and social services between 2009 and 2012. Suicides increased 45 % between 2007 and 2011 an, over roughly the same period, cases of depression more than doubled and infant mortality rose by 43 per cent. By 2012, new HIV cases in the group of drug users were 32 times the 2009 level. Greece also had its first cases of locally spread malaria for 40 years.
