Forum on Albinism
"The Government and the Department of Social Welfare have been criticised for failing to address the concerns of albinos in Ghana.According to Professor Edmund Nminyem Delle, Life Patron of the Association of Persons with Albinism (GAPA), four petitions addressed to government by the Society of Albinos in Ghana (SOAG) have never received any response." Speaking at a lecture organized by GAPA in Accra, on "The Myth and the Reality" of albinism, Prof. Delle decried mistreatment of persons with albinism in the country. He cites a World Health Organization report that there are about 170,000 personw with albinism in Ghana.
