Human Rights Violations Targeting Persons with Albinism in Africa. These plans must have a multi-year budget and include concrete and effective measures to protect children against these crimes. We, therefore, recommended that the government of Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia: a. Prioritise the adoption and implementation of National Action Plans on Albinism. b. Allocate a dedicated budget to ensure the effective implementation of the National Action Plan on Albinism and other programme interventions on albinism. c. Take steps to align the National Action Plan on Albinism with the recently adopted Africa Union Plan of Action and Implementation Matrix to End Attacks and Other Human Rights Violations Targeting Persons with Albinism in Africa (2021–2031). We recommend that the government of Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia in relation to violence against children with albinism: a. Continue to strengthen efforts in prevention, detection, investigation, prosecution and punishment of violent crimes affecting children with albinism in their country. b. Ensure that victims and family members have access to appropriate remedies. Provide victims of attacks and their families with full medical care for injuries sustained, psychiatric counselling, monetary compensation and, reallocation to safer areas of residence where necessary. c. In this regard training of actors in the justice system, including police, courts, tribunals, national human rights institutions, ombudspersons, forensic investigations and other mechanisms on the human rights of children with albinism is paramount. The African Albinism Network (AAN) extends its gratitude to the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child for its historic and continued active engagement on the rights and welfare of children with albinism in Africa, and looks forward to its interventions in this ongoing tragic, deplorable disgraceful problem of attacks against children with albinism. Thank you.
