Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples

Uncover a wealth of resources dedicated to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Access curated materials offering cultural depth and understanding. Explore the Strong Born Campaign, an initiative raising awareness about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) within these communities, providing support and essential information. Delve into a collection of Australian Indigenous resources and research, thoughtfully curated to promote cultural awareness and appreciation.

It is essential to recognise that, due to the ongoing implications of colonisation and resulting trauma, FASD and the harms of alcohol use has emerged as an additional health burden for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

What is FASD?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the term used to describe the lifelong physical and/or neurodevelopmental impairments that can result from fetal alcohol exposure. FASD is a condition that is an outcome of parents either not being aware of the dangers of alcohol use when pregnant or planning a pregnancy, or not being supported to stay healthy and strong during pregnancy.
