Taking action on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder 2016-2019: An Action Plan
Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is the umbrella term used to describe the range of effects that can occur when a fetus is exposed to alcohol during pregnancy.
This action plan aims to create a more effective, equitable and collaborative approach to FASD. It is a cross-agency commitment designed to build on the work that is already under way by providing coordinated support to those on the frontline of this issue.
