September is Albinism Awareness Month. During this month Government provides information on albinism to make people more aware of what this condition is about.

The international non-governmental organisation, NOAH, notes that “although there are many people with albinism who are at peace with the term albino, when dealing with any condition, it’s is best to put the person first. For instance, say, “a person with albinism” rather than “an albino” or “an albino person.” The rationale for this person-centered language is to do just that: put the person ahead of the condition.”
