Stroke: No Postcode Untouched

This report from the Stroke Foundation demonstrates the cities and towns where stroke is having its biggest impact, where the need for stroke survivor support is most urgent and where the future stroke hotspots are located. It contains federal electorate breakdowns of key information including the number of strokes, the number of stroke survivors living in the community and the leading risk factors for preventable stroke.
Also by looking at the No Postcode Untouched website you can see that the Cowper Electorate has 5000 people, nearly double the national average of people living with stroke. In 2017, 522 people within the electorate suffered a stroke.
