The History of International Albinism Awareness Day
On December 18, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution designating June 13 as International Albinism Awareness Day, with effect from 2015. On March 26, 2015, the Council established the mandate of Independent Expert on the enjoyment of human rights by persons with albinism in response to a call from civil society organizations advocating that people with albinism be treated as a distinct group with unique needs that require special attention.
What exactly is albinism?
Albinism is a genetically inherited, rare, non-contagious condition that manifests itself at birth. For practically all varieties of albinism to be handed down, both parents must carry the gene, even if they do not have albinism. The illness affects both sexes, regardless of ethnicity, and occurs in every country on the planet. Albinism is characterized by a lack of pigment (melanin) in the hair, skin, and eyes, making the person vulnerable to the sun and strong light. As a result, practically everyone who has albinism is visually impaired and at risk for skin cancer. There is no cure for albinism, which is caused by a lack of melanin.
