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.

The alcohol industry has spent millions glamourising drinking. We need these hard hitting effective campaigns more often to help people to be informed & to support people to make change - @janemartinopc, Alcohol Policy Mgr @CancerVic & Co-Chair @ACTIONonALCOHOL #drinklesslivemore

When it comes to cancer there is no safe level of alcohol consumption. We hope through this campaign people will start to consider alternatives or a reduction in how much they drink - @ToddHarperAUS, CEO Cancer Council Victoria #drinklesslivemore
