On December 12 Minister Natasha Fyles and the NT Government released their first FASD Strategy in what is ‘the most comprehensive alcohol reform in the NT’s history.’ Prioritising the assessment of children in out of home care and in the juvenile justice system, improving the ability of family and communities to respond to neuro-developmental impairment, supporting the establishment of multidisciplinary assessment clinics, and working in partnership with the Primary Health Network, Aboriginal Medical Service and the Aboriginal Community controlled health sector are key strategies.
