STIGMA, SOCIAL SUPPORT AND SUBJECTIVE WELL-BEING OF PERSONS WITH ALBINISM IN GHANA

Abstract 

There are few empirical studies on the experiences of persons with albinism in Ghana. This study investigated the subjective well-being (SWB) of persons with albinism in selected Regions in Ghana. Participants (N = 105) were recruited via purposive and snowball sampling, and completed a survey questionnaire on social stigma, social support and subjective well-being. Results from Hierarchical Multiple regression indicated that there was a significant negative relationship between stigma and SWB. There was a significant positive relationship between social support and subjective well-being. Further, social support did not moderate the relationship between social stigma and subjective well-being. Besides, there were no gender differences in subjective well-being of persons with albinism. The implications of these results are discussed
