The Australian Stroke Alliance

Delivering urgent stroke care on the roads and in the air.

Welcome to the Australian Stroke Alliance where, along with 40 national agencies, we are transforming prehospital stroke care. We are delivering urgent, life-saving care across our vast continent.

It’s about equity, world-first innovation and bringing time-critical stroke treatment directly to the patient.

Not everyone lives in a big city with access to stroke treatment, so we are addressing major gaps in health outcomes for Australians in rural, remote and Indigenous communities. We believe your postcode shouldn’t determine your access to world class healthcare.
