Australia finally has a tool for diagnosing foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) — a condition caused by mothers consuming alcohol while pregnant. More than 500,000 Australians are on the spectrum and specialists say it is a significant health burden which is not getting the attention it deserves. Doctors and those affected by the disorder are calling for further investment in FASD services and say it should be managed like other lifestyle diseases like diabetes.
