Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples suffer stroke at a younger age, and are twice as likely to be hospitalised for stroke compared to non-Indigenous Australians.
But First Nations communities possess enormous strengths and resilience, and we're committed to working together to prevent more strokes and to improve culturally safe stroke treatment and recovery.
