Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Research Report
South Africa has the highest reported Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) prevalence rates in the world, ranging from 26/1000 (2,6%) in Gauteng to 282/1000 (28,2%) in the Northern Cape Province (May, 2016; Olivier, 2016; Urban, 2016). Until 2014 no FASD prevalence studies have been done to date in provinces such as the Eastern Cape (this is the first study), Free State KwaZulu Natal, North West, Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces. Using the existing FARR prevalence study rates in 2008, the Department of Health estimated the country’s FASD prevalence rate to be approximately 6% (Presentation by Corrigal, 2008). Since then very high prevalence rates have been reported in the Western, Eastern and Northern Cape Provinces, so the estimated country rate remains a risky guess.Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Research Booklet
