Press Release

 

The Pacific Disability Forum (PDF) for the first time is celebrating International Albinism Awareness Day to raise awareness on persons with albinism and the issues they face in their everyday life. On December 18, 2014, the United Nations’ General Assembly adopted a resolution establishing June 13th as International Albinism Awareness Day which confirmed the global focus on albinism advocacy. With this year’s theme, “Made to Shine”, PDF wishes to salute and acknowledge persons with albinism on their contribution to society despite the various types of discrimination they face. In the Pacific, it is believed that one in seven hundred is persons with albinism.
