Hina Khalid, PhD, MPP, Lecturer (she/her)

Hina Khalid

I am a Researcher in the Child Well-Being Research Unit at the Research and Data Analysis Division, Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (RDA DSHS). I am also a Lecturer at the School of Nursing and Health Studies, University of Washington Bothell. Prior to these experiences, I worked as an Assistant Professor at the Information Technology University in Pakistan.


My research focuses on improving health outcomes with a special interest in how government policies, institutions, and politics mediate these outcomes. Specific research areas include:
• Child health (child stunting, immunizations, mental health)
• Vaccine hesitancy and uptake (with a focus on COVID-19).
• Vulnerable populations (people with intellectual and developmental disabilities).

My research has been supported by grants from the World Health Organization, World Bank, Shahid Hussain Foundation, and the International Growth Centre.
