About this issue

This section is about improving our response to pregnant women and mothers with substance use problems, and integrating women-centred, health-oriented approaches in prevention and policy initiatives designed to prevent Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).


BCCEWH researchers lead the Network Action Team (NAT) on FASD Prevention from a Women’s Health Determinants Perspective, a part of the CanFASD Research Network. The NAT promotes prevention of FASD from a women-centred, harm-reduction-oriented perspective. The ongoing virtual community meetings of the NAT foster inter-jurisdictional linkages between researchers and community collaborators, and link researchers, service providers, and policy advisors across Canada.
