International Albinism Awareness Day 2019 – Still Standing Strong

The world celebrates International Albinism Awareness Day (IAAD) 2019 today, June 13, 2019, with the theme Still Standing Strong. IAAD is a call to recognize, celebrate and stand in solidarity with albinism patients around the globe.

The theme calls people to support their cause, right from their achievements to the protection of their human rights. Albinism sufferers face social stigma, obstacles in access to areas of health and education and ignorance in social and political arenas.

And despite all, they STILL STAND STRONG! #stillstrong

What is Albinism?
