Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Prevention

The Australian Government, Department of Health has contracted Menzies to develop and implement a flexible, modular package of FASD Prevention and Health Promotion Resources (FPHPR) to reduce the impacts of FASD on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.  In partnership with National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation and Telethon Kids Institute, Menzies are using a ‘train-the-trainer’ approach to enable services to make the self-assessments needed in tailoring the resources for local circumstances, particularly community needs and local workforce capacity.

Professor Sven Silburn from the CCDE is Chief Investigator on this project.
