FASD Hub

FASD Hub Australia is a one-stop shop for information, tools and resources on fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) in Australia that are current and evidence based.

The FASD Hub Australia website provides targeted information for health professionals, parents and carers, other professionals (including for justice, education, child protection and disability services), researchers and policy makers.

It offers a directory of FASD-informed health professionals in Australia and a comprehensive listing of past and present Australian research projects, publications and resources. Information is focused on how alcohol use during pregnancy can affect the development of the fetus; the need for early diagnosis; how to diagnose; how health professionals and families can work together to give the best possible support to people living with FASD; and what researchers and policy makers are doing to help make a difference.

Development of the FASD Hub was led by University of Sydney and the Telethon Kids Institute. Partners include NOFASD Australia, Menzies School of Health Research, Australian and New Zealand FASD Clinical Network, and the FASD Research Australia Centre for Research Excellence.
