Shaffa Hameed is a Research Fellow at the International Centre for Evidence in Disability (ICED) at LSHTM. Prior to joining ICED, Shaffa undertook a number of qualitative and policy research commissioned by international and local NGOs in the Maldives, contributing to regional and local understanding of social and religious barriers to reproductive health. Her work at the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) focused on evaluating programmes and research on sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender-based violence, with emphasis on strengthening institutional response to these. The common thread throughout Shaffa’s research career has been sexual and reproductive health and rights of vulnerable groups, based on which she completed her doctorate at the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2012.
