New Independent Expert on Albinism Takes Up Post

“After years of work on the issue in the human rights arena, and having lived with albinism, I considered that I had a unique combination of skills and experiences which could be put to good use at the service of my fellows with albinism,” said Ikponwosa “IK” Ero.
Ero, from Nigeria, has been appointed as the first ever Independent Expert on the enjoyment of human rights by persons with albinism by the Human Rights Council. Her plans for the new mandate include the development of specific measures to help end attacks as well as a draft Model of best practices to promote and protect the human rights of persons with albinism.
