The Brazilian government is providing free antiretroviral therapies to all of the country's registered AIDS cases, and this policy is being hailed as a model for treatment AIDS worldwide. My paper is an ethnographic investigation of this emergent biopolitical paradigm. I explore the forms of governance, civility, and humanness that emerge through this population whose rights are biotechnologically realized, and the mechanisms through which this model continues to not address the most vulnerable populations, leaving them "invisible."
