About this book

Introduction

This volume examines how local actors respond to Africa’s high dependence on donor health funds. It conceptualizes dependent agency, a condition in which local people can both influence and be dependent on donor programs. Focusing on AIDS projects in Malawi and Zambia, the book questions the role of Africans in a dynamic aid architecture and their responses to the myriad of opportunities and constraints that accompany it.
