Hedland FASD Project - Telethon Kids Institute

'Warajanga Marnti Warrarnja - Together we walk on country' is a partnership between the Telethon Kids Institute and BHP Billiton in collaboration with Wirraka Maya Health Service Aboriginal Corporation and the Hedland FASD Network.

Working with the community, the project has the bold goal to make FASD history in the Pilbara and builds upon the successful FASD prevention model in the Kimberley, the Marulu Strategy. The project was officially launched on October 10, 2016 at the Spinifex Hill Studio in South Hedland.

The research in the Pilbara is focused on three main areas. These include reducing the prevalence of FASD in the Hedland area, diagnosis of children who might have FASD, and support for children and families affected by FASD.
