Invitation for Strong Born Launch - FARE and NACCHO


would like to invite you to the launch of the Strong Born campaign, on Wednesday 22nd February 2023 from 3pm – 4pm AEDT via Microsoft Teams Webinar. Please find the invitation attached.


Strong Born is a communications campaign designed to raise awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and the harms of drinking alcohol while pregnant and breastfeeding, among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in rural and remote communities (MM4-MM7). Strong Born is also about supporting people with FASD and their families and carers, by understanding what FASD is, and the services that may be available for individuals and families. 


The Strong Born campaign has been developed by NACCHO in collaboration with the National FASD Campaign Working Group which includes multi-disciplinary staff from Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs), and cultural and clinical FASD experts and researchers.


Strong Born is part of the National Information Campaign for Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women and is supported by the Foundation of Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) and the Commonwealth Department of Health and Aged Care.
