UN expert set to assess human rights
of persons with albinism in Kenya

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Ikponwosa Ero, United Nations independent expert on the enjoyment of human rights by persons with albinism, is set to begin an official visit to Kenya to assess human rights issues.

Ero said in a statement issued ahead of her Sept. 7-17 visit that the purpose of the mission is to identify good practices, challenges and potential gaps in human rights to be addressed.

“I will be assessing the legislative, policy and institutional framework, as well as specific measures in place to ensure the right to life and security for persons with albinism, while respecting their right to freedom of movement,” the expert stressed.

During her 10-day visit, Ero will visit Nairobi, as well as Thika, Embu, Eldoret and Migori and will also engage with the authorities in Kenya, persons with albinism, the international community among others.

“I will also pay specific attention to issues related to the right to health; focus on concerns and policies relating to the education of children with albinism, and will look at what is being done to address discrimination generally.” she said.

Ero will also present a comprehensive report of her visit to the UN Human Rights Council in March 2019.
