Abstract

The article explores how the social construction of 'success' by program funders foregrounds the role of biomedicine in advancing health, with no attention to the wider social contexts that make it possible for poor people to use this medicine to advance their health. The article considers the impact of the governance of the disease in Burundi. The case study highlights the disjuncture between the assumed ideal governance of the disease and people's needs to obtain healthy lives.
