11. to make a feature of; give prominence (突出) to: to feature a story or picture in a newspaper. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/feature That's the best I could manage.

It has not been given prominence or importance as much as the other success stories in eliminating diseases have got.

It means it does not get the same amount of attention that other success stories do (the writer thinks it does not get ENOUGH attention).
