About Melissa Ditmore

About me

I’m a freelance consultant specializing in issues of gender, development, health and human rights, particularly as they relate to marginalized populations like sex workers, migrants and people who use drugs. My past and current clients include the Asia Development Bank, AIDS Fonds Nederland, and the Sex Workers Project at the Urban Justice Center. I have extensive experience of working on projects both in the United States and in Asia and Africa. My doctoral training in Sociology and behavioral science training make me particularly qualified for community-based and participatory research projects.


If you’d like to know more about my work, you can follow me on Twitter.

I also write regularly for RH Reality Check and Comment is Free.

Details of my books can also be found on my Amazon author page (UK version).
