The conclusion asks how Malagasy and Americans reckon the time duration or end-time of medical relief. Many Malagasy and Americans express concerns about the long-term foreign presence and “dependency” of the medical relief model, a subject about which scholars of humanitarianism have written extensively. What is its end, and what futures can be imagined through its termination? Intertwining these imagined futures with the present-moment of aid, the conclusion considers how aid circulations are diverse projects of world-making for religious actors.
