Stroke research remains underfunded compared to other life-changing conditions
Stroke changes lives in an instant and is a leading cause of disability in the UK. Research is vital to find new ways and to improve care and treatment for over 1.2 million people in the UK living with the effects of stroke.
This report shows the need for further investment in stroke research in the UK, as it is currently underfunded by governmental organisations and charities in comparison to its devastating effects on peoples' lives and other life-changing conditions: cancer, dementia and coronary heart disease.
