No Post Code Untouched


  • An estimated 27,428 Australians experienced stroke for the first time in their lives in 2020, and there were an estimated 445,087 survivors of stroke living in the community.
  • The economic cost of stroke exceeded $6.2 billion, with a further $26.0 billion in lost wellbeing -due to short and long-term disability, and premature death.
  • Reducing uncontrolled high-blood pressure and improving access to stroke treatment and care could mean thousands of Australians avoiding stroke, surviving and living well after stroke equating to savings of $179.0 million over five years in economic costs and $2.4 billion in reduced mortality and improved wellbeing annually.

Stroke Foundation commissioned Deloitte Access Economics to deliver The economic impact of stroke in Australia, 2020, coupled with an update of Stroke Foundation’s No Postcode Untouched, Stroke in Australia 2020 report quantifying the impact of stroke. The economic impact of stroke in Australia, 2020 uses financial modelling to estimate the economic impact of stroke, looking at direct health system costs as well as the broader impact of short and long-term disability on the community.

The Report also modelled the savings that could be made by acting to reduce uncontrolled high blood pressure and provide quicker access to emergency stroke treatments. The No Postcode Untouched, Stroke in Australia 2020 report maps stroke incidence, prevalence and risk factors by federal electorate division.
