Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder
Alberta Cross Ministry Initiative
The Alberta government is committed to reducing the incidence of FASD and ensuring individuals living with FASD and their caregivers get the critical support they need.
A unique made-in-Alberta plan on FASD focuses on developing and delivering community-based solutions, making it easier for people affected by FASD to get the help they need, at any point during their life.
FASD-related initiatives across Alberta help build awareness, promote prevention, increase access to FASD assessment and diagnosis clinics, conduct new research, and provide support for individuals living with FASD and their caregivers.
By working together, we will help Albertans already affected by FASD and lower the number of babies born with the disorder.
