The Ministry of Health received 150 submissions on the discussion document Taking Action on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, which presents an action plan for addressing fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) in New Zealand.
Submissions were overwhelmingly in favour of the action plan, the principles and the outcomes outlined in the discussion document. However, a few submissions called for some key changes. This document summarises the submissions.
The feedback received during the consultation process is reflected in the final action plan, Taking Action on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: 2016-2019: An Action Plan.
