The Government of Tanzania has taken important steps to tackle the problem of ritualistic violence against people living with albinism, but challenges remain.

That's according to the United Nations Resident Coordinator in the East African country, Alvaro Rodriguez.

The International Albinism Awareness Day was observed for the first time at a big event in the city of Arusha in northern Tanzania on 13 of June.

Priscilla Lecomte spoke with Mr Rodriguez on the line from Arusha about the efforts of the Tanzanian government to address violence against people living with albinism.
