The Greek crisis is a huge concern in Europe and throughout the world. Because of this crisis, unemployment has soared, taxes have gone up, salaries have been significantly reduced and much more. However, the causes of the crisis must be examined to avoid another crisis in the future. To better understand the causes of the Greek crisis, we must look at how the government functioned over the last 30 years. Moreover, the economic crisis has had a severe effect on the health system. In this paper, I will argue that the health system was always corrupt and was always in a crisis. And when the economic crisis hit the country, it only made the system worse and caused a health crisis. I will also examine the main causes of the economic crisis, as well as how it has had an effect on the health system.
