Cure for Stroke Australia (CFSA) was established to achieve a significant impact on improving stroke health outcomes in Australia through research.

CFSA supports research undertaken through the Stroke Research Programme (SRP), a unique collaboration between the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), University of Adelaide, the Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) and the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research (BHI). The SRP has been instrumental in helping establish dedicated Stroke Treatment Units at major hospitals in Adelaide including the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH), The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) and the Lyell McEwin Hospital (LMH).  Research conducted by the SRP is helping to improve response times and health outcomes for individuals who have a stroke.  Through innovative research the SRP is also striving to discover new therapies to overcome disability following stroke.
