Closing the Gap Clearinghouse (2015)

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders: a review of interventions for prevention and management in Indigenous communities.

Canberra: Closing the Gap Clearinghouse

This report defines Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and provides currently available estimates of its prevalence in the overall Australian population and in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.

This resource reviews the Australian and international literature published since 1990 on the effectiveness of programs that aim to prevent FASD or to alleviate its effects. Evidence on the effectiveness of Australian and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander specific programs is also assessed, including those programs that have been developed and implemented in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
