FASD Hub Advertising Policy

Advertising revenue

All editorial content on FASD Hub Australia’s website and social media platforms is independent of any paid or advertised content. We select and develop content based on objective and fair criteria including its evidence-base, credibility and relevance to our audiences.

FASD Hub Australia does not accept advertising revenue for the promotion of any third party’s service, product, resource, or therapeutic intervention.

Promoting FASD Hub Australia content

FASD Hub Australia will from time to time use advertising to promote awareness of FASD in Australia and content we have developed or been a partner in its development. This includes advertising on social media and digital or hardcopy publications. Any advertising undertaken should be ethically sound, balanced and sensitive to the issues surrounding FASD in Australia.

FASD Hub Australia will seek endorsement and promotion of its message by online influencers, however it will not seek any paid endorsement from online influencers.


Promoting involvement in research

FASD Hub Australia will review all requests to include surveys, recruitment for clinical trials or members for project advisory/steering groups on the website. Projects will need to have ethics approval specific to these requests; include the name of the organisation/institution with overarching responsibility for the project; and have a name and contact details for further information, prior to publication.

Promoting educational events

To be included on the list of training opportunities (online or face to face) the event must be relevant to the FASD Hub audience (for example health, justice & education professionals, parents and caregivers, researchers, policy makers) and content must be consistent with the National Health and Medical Research Council Australian Guidelines to reduce health risks from drinking alcohol – Guideline 3:

  1. To prevent harm from alcohol to their unborn child, women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy should not drink alcohol.
  2. For women who are breastfeeding, not drinking alcohol is safest for their baby.

FASD Hub team members may request to view the program to ensure it meets these requirements. This does not exclude workshops by international presenters who are discussing findings of research or programs undertaken in another country. It is acknowledged that organisers need to recoup costs such as venue hire, catering, presenters etc, and events that charge a fee to register/attend will not be excluded from the list of events.

The FASD Hub does not endorse or accept advertising revenue for the promotion of any third party educational events.
