Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Awareness Day

International Foetal Alcohol Awareness Day

Friday 9 September is International FASD Awareness Day, a day that is dedicated to raising awareness about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

International FASD Awareness Day is observed every year on 9 September at 9:09am in recognition of the nine months of a pregnancy. The day aims to raise awareness about the risks associated with drinking alcohol during pregnancy and to increase the profile of FASD, the leading preventable cause of non-genetic developmental disability in Australia.

This year the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) is joining Australian, and international, efforts by asking people to raise awareness on social media and commit to being alcohol free for the day. We’re also asking you to support health professionals who are pledging to speak to all women about alcohol to prevent FASD.
