Albinism (Support program)
Brief- Albinism Sunscreen and Support Program
Over the last two years, the council has been supporting clients who succumb to skin cancer by paying for the medical bills. Before clients go to the pharmacist to collect lotions they are usually examined by the clinician first in order to help identify any signs of skin cancer.
The UN Human Rights Council, resolutions 23/13 of 13 June 2013, on attacks and discrimination against persons with albinism, and 24/33 of 27 September 2013, on technical cooperation for the prevention of attacks against persons with albinism, culminated into November 18, 2014, the United Nations’ General Assembly adopting a resolution establishing June 13th as International Albinism Awareness Day. This historic resolution firmly fixes albinism advocacy at a global level.
Albinism is not contagious
