Albinism Disease

In this disease, there is a deficiency of pigment called melanin which is found in hair, skin and eyes. Due to this, this person is not able to bear the sun and strong light. The result of this is that every person suffering from this disease, starts having trouble with vision and he or she is at increased risk of getting skin cancer. There is currently no cure in the world for this disease caused due to lack of melanin.

International Albinism Awareness Day Theme 2022

The theme for the International Albinism Awareness Day this year is “United in making our voice heard.” The subject was chosen in order to raise the voices of people dealing with albinism and to highlight the work that is being done by and for them.
