Description

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a lifelong condition which is entirely preventable, by not consuming alcohol during pregnancy. The government's vision for the future is that no children are born with this preventable disability.

The Northern Territory government is delivering broad alcohol reforms that aim to reduce the demand, supply and harm caused by alcohol across the NT. It is anticipated that the initiatives targeting alcohol misuse across the NT will reduce population levels of consumption, and will contribute to reducing the incidence of FASD in our community.
