Albinos Call for Special Attention
The Ghana Association of Persons with Albinism (GAPA) calls on the government to group persons with albinism as persons with disabilities. The Association made this appeal during their recent lecture themed: 'Albinism: the myth and the reality.' They cite The Disability Act 715 as inadequate in its restrictive definition of disabilities which excludes persons with albinism. The lecture was given by Prof. Edmond Nminyem Delle, Director of Rabito Health Ltd and lecturer at the University of Development Studies who listed some challenges albinos on the continent faced including the myth that such a child was a taboo or a curse.
