About Cure for Stroke Australia

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

For every $1 you donate, we provide over $5 in grants to lifesaving stroke research. This is because we are part of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group. Our administration costs are covered by THRF’s commercial business activities (such as its lottery program), which also boosts our funds to research and patient care each year. You can feel proud knowing your donation makes an even bigger impact to the health and wellbeing of your community. The audited financial statements of THRF can be viewed here.

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.
