2024 marks a decade since the launch of International Albinism Awareness Day. To mark this occasion, this year’s theme is: “10 years of IAAD: A decade of collective progress.” 

This theme invites us to: 

  • Celebrate the strides made within the movement, with renewed commitment for the future;

  • Highlight the tireless efforts of albinism groups from around the world;

  • Reflect on the continued legal, policy and practical changes still required to ensure the full and equal enjoyment of rights by persons with albinism.

Did you know?

  • Albinism is a genetic condition inherited from both parents that occurs worldwide, regardless of ethnicity or gender.

  • The common lack of melanin pigment in the hair, skin and eyes of people with albinism causes vulnerability to sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer and severe visual impairment.

  • As many as 1 in 5,000 people in Sub-Saharan Africa and 1 in 20,000 people in Europe and North America have albinism.

  • In some countries people with albinism suffer discrimination, poverty, stigma, violence and even killings.

  • In some countries, women who give birth to children with albinism are repudiated by their husbands, and their children abandoned or the victims of infanticide.

  • The movie industry has seldom portrayed people with albinism accurately, preferring to depict them as villains, demons or freaks of nature.

  • Violence against people with albinism is largely met by social silence and indifference, and is seldom followed by investigations or the prosecution of perpetrators.
