Worldwide, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is the only disability of its type that is considered 100 per cent preventable. While promising prevention practices have been developed and implemented, the condition still occurs and cases are often diagnosed late. Efforts are now underway to diagnose this disorder earlier and more easily. In this Café we explore—through the lens of research—clinical care and advocacy; and why we need to address this lifelong disability medically and socially in a way that protects the rights of the women, men, children, families and communities affected.
