FARE develops and advocates for policies and programs that work.
We undertake and communicate world-leading research to governments and decision-makers to advance and inform strategies to prevent alcohol harm in Australia. We educate and mobilise Australian communities and organisations to work collectively together. And we defend the public interest, promoting open decision-making and holding the alcohol industry to account.

- Game Changer+ media literacy program
The Game Changer+ program aims to build the skills, knowledge and understanding of young people to view and analyse alcohol-related media, advertising and other communications, such that they are able to think critically about alcohol messages in a way that empowers them to re-think their choices and behaviours regarding the consumption of alcohol.
- Pregnant Pause
The campaign encourages Australians to go alcohol free during their pregnancy, or the pregnancy of their partner, family member, friend or loved one.
- End Alcohol Advertising in Sport
The End Alcohol Advertising in Sport campaign calls for alcohol advertising to be phased out of professional sports. This is an initiative by the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education, supported by health organisations across Australia.
- Prevention 1st
The verdict is in: Prevention is better than cure when it comes to tackling Australia’s chronic disease burden. But is Australia pulling its weight when it comes to tackling the nation’s greatest public health challenge?
- Alcohol Truth
Alcohol Truth is a Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education campaign that puts the facts at the forefront of discussion on alcohol.
- Women Want to Know
Women Want to Know was officially launched by FARE on 1 July 2014 in response to research which indicated that many pregnant women weren’t receiving much information, or were hearing conflicted messages, about alcohol consumption.
