After months of hard work, the Africa Albinism Network (AAN) is proud to present our new website. A lot has changed since we launched our first website back in 2021. In view of the dynamic journey we are embarking on, it was clear that we needed a website that reflected our experience.
You can navigate our website in English, French, and Portuguese.
At AAN, our vision is to promote an inclusive world for persons with albinism (PWA). For example, we designed a website that persons with albinism, most of whom have low vision, can easily use and navigate. We also hope that the African and global community of supporters around the world promoting the rights of persons with albinism will benefit from the content we share.
Our core mission at the AAN is to promote the implementation of the African Union (AU) Plan of Action to end attacks and other human rights violations targeting persons with albinism (2021-2031).
