WHO: Greeks Not Self-Infecting HIV

Now that’s one big retraction. After publishing a report last month in which the World Health Organization claimed about half of new HIV cases in Greece were self-inflicted so that the individuals could get benefits of $1,000 a month, the WHO now says it is not true. The WHO now says that the study they based that on says there were only anecdotal cases of people self-infecting to get government pay-outs (which is still horrifying).
