Almost four years into COVID-19, the dust is settling on the impact of the pandemic on global health theory and practice, and the lessons (not)learned. Drawing from ongoing research projects, and personal observations and frustrations, this paper reflects on global health as an analytical framework and worldview through the lens of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on notions of the global community, history’s lessons, and solidarity.
