Initiatives and programs

We're working on a range of policy initiatives, programs and campaigns to help improve your health and the health of all Australians.

  • This initiative aims to give health professionals the skills they need to discuss alcohol and pregnancy with women. It has developed resources such as accredited training, brochures and videos. The initiative's working group includes health professional bodies and a consumer representative.

  • This funded website provides current, authoritative and evidence-based information about fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). It has resources for parents and carers, researchers, health professionals and health care providers.

  • This funded initiative encourages Australians to go alcohol-free during their pregnancy or the pregnancy of loved ones. It helps mums-to-be build a strong support system. It also raises awareness of the serious effects of alcohol during pregnancy.

  • The Australian Government is investing in research to improve the opportunity for health intervention in the time between a woman's pregnancy and her child's fifth birthday.
