Persons with Albinism need to:

- Wear good sunglasses
- Avoid midday sun
- Wear wide brimmed hats and caps,
long sleeved cloth
- Have regular skin checks to detect early signs of skin cancer.
AFZ works with various stakeholders to provide free access to adequate sunprotection for PWA
Although the Ministry of Health has free sunscreen, most health centres either do not have it in stock or are far away. Some PWA are afraid to go to the healt centres to get the sunscreen, because need to leave their safe home.
