Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has refocussed research into local responses to global health campaigns and the complex relationships between individual and communal practices of care. Drawing on ethnographic work in Uganda, researchers at the LSE Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa argue that humanitarian responders should consider the impact of reifying the individual as the primary actor.
