FASD PosterMaker is a free easy-to-use app designed to provide health professionals working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health care settings with a tool to create their own locally relevant and culturally appropriate resources on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
FASD PosterMaker provides you with pre-loaded messages and images that can be used to create local resources, or it allows you to create your own evidence-based text and add your own images to use in resources.
It has been developed with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia.
• library of evidence-based text messages around prevention, safety, symptoms, responsibility, healthy lifestyles etc;
• library of images to choose from to reflect the messages chosen for your resources;
• include your own text and images for use in your resources;
