Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) affects individuals across the breadth of the Australian community. The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is opening a targeted call for research (TCR) into fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Consistent with the Australian Government's commitment to Indigenous Health with Closing the Gap, research funded under the targeted call will need to be highly relevant to the health needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
This TCR provides support for research with a primary focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities (NHMRC's Priority Research Area of Indigenous Health).
The objectives of the research include, but are not limited to, the following:
The desired outcomes from the research are to provide an evidence base to support the development and implementation of culturally appropriate programs and interventions to address the problem of FASD.
