Govt Tables Bill to Recognize Albinos
After being shunned as persons with disabilities under the 2006 Persons With Disabilities Act, persons with albinism in Uganda now have some respite. They have now been recognized in a 2010 Ammendment: The National Council for Disabilites Amendment Bill. The Bill also seeks to increase the participation of persons with disabiliteis in parliament.
