Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Winter/Spring 2004: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) describes a range of physical and developmental problems affecting some children born to women who drink alcohol during pregnancy. Since FAS cannot be reversed, it is important to focus efforts on prevention. The usual approach has been to focus on a single determinant -- alcohol use -- and the impact this has on the child’s health. Yet, as the author demonstrates, this approach is too narrow and may actually be creating barriers for women who use substances during pregnancy and need help. This policy document describes current knowledge about FAS and prevention strategies, and outlines an alternative, multiple-determinants approach to FAS prevention that would be more effective for both mothers and babies, more humane and more cost-efficient.
