The International Centre for Evidence in Disability at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) was launched in June, 2010. The aim is to establish LSHTM as an international centre with expertise and competence in disability research and teaching in the context of public health and development.

The Centre draws together a diverse range of researchers, with broad skills and knowledge in the field of disability. Our focus is on developing tools, techniques and evidence about disability, leading to scalable interventions.

We place a strong emphasis on translating research outcomes into practice and are closely linked to several international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and agencies to help achieve this goal. The majority of our research is undertaken in Low and Middle Income Countries. We are also run a teaching programme on disability within LSHTM.

Disability is relevant to many different areas within public health. Consequently, the International Centre for Evidence in Disability collaborates with several centres and groups within LSHTM, for undertaking research, hosting of seminars, formal teaching and research degree supervision. These include:

We also work closely with external groups, including CBM.
