How We Work

We work with like-minded entities to prioritize human rights-based support for persons with albinism in Africa and influence action in response to the challenges faced by persons with albinism and their family members, through these three key vehicles:

The Human Rights-Based Approach

A commitment to dignity and equality, empowering all as rights-holders such as albinism leaders and groups through capacity development, holding governments accountable. Discover AAN’s impactful human rights advocacy collaborations.

Plan of Action on albinism as an Advocacy Tool

The Africa Union Plan of Action to End Attacks and Other Human Rights Violations Targeting Persons with Albinism in Africa (Plan of Action 2021-2031) is our strategic framework of operation. It is a tool that unites our diverse stakeholders and partners around a common objective and plan to end albinism-targeted human rights violations.


We provide a rich library of more than 500 digital resources in different languages accessible to activists, researchers, the media, and other key stakeholders that can advance the movement for the promotion of human rights for persons with albinism.
