This section focuses on the structures within which cure operates. First and foremost of these structures is the medical-industrial complex, which is described as an intricate jumble of economic interests and scientific frameworks, public and private institutions, governmental regulations and cultural understandings. Within the medical-industrial complex, cure exists in tandem with diagnosis, treatment, management, rehabilitation, and prevention. Together they form a far-reaching network, which always functions in relationship to bodies and minds that are considered troubled and/or troubling. This section asks, what realities are defined as trouble by whom and for whose benefit? Lastly, there is an examination of different kinds of cure—reliable, risky, ambiguous, experimental, and imaginary—and different kinds of cure technologies, some of them medical and others not.
