Welcome to Voice of Albinism
Our Three Aims
- To change the opinions and aspirations of people living with albinism
- To raise awareness of Albinism in the community by reducing the stigma around the condition
- To educate people not affected by or born with albinism on how to accommodate and accept those with albinism.
Albinism is bigger than you think
Albinism impacts around one in seventeen-thousand people, with some parts of the world having records of albinism being shown every three-thousand people. Albinism, from the Latin albus, meaning “white,” is a group of heritable conditions associated with decreased or absent melanin in ectoderm-derived tissues (most notably the skin, hair, and eyes), yielding a characteristic pallor.
