The Albinism Fellowship of Australia (AFA) is a national, non-profit organization established in 2005. It is run by volunteers who have albinism or been personally touched by albinism in some way.

The AFA’s key purpose is to provide support, education and fellowship to those with albinism, parents of children with albinism as well as their families and friends. While the albinism community in Australia is only small, the AFA provides a united voice to encourage productive developments and support within business, government and media.

Our mission is to :

  • Provide fellowship within the Australian albinism community,
  • Promote understanding of albinism to our stakeholders,
  • Foster relationships with international albinism networks.

Our vision is to facilitate universal, the understanding, acceptance, celebration of albinism in Australasia.
