A response to reports in the news about small, early studies that make it look like the coronavirus may be causing strokes.
Having a stroke is bad enough. But nobody should have to live in fear. We asked survivors about how they were feeling and what they were worried about after their stroke.
If you have been affected by stroke, this is your chance to ask any questions you would like research to try to answer.
We want to support the next generation of stroke research leaders to continue to improve stroke care and the lives of people affected by stroke in the years to come. We’re proud to introduce you to four researchers at the beginning of their careers who have recently been awarded Stroke Association research fellowships.
More than half (57%) of stroke survivors surveyed by the Stroke Association say their sex life has changed since their stroke – with a third saying they are now too scared to have sex. Sex and relationships play a vital role in helping stroke survivors to rebuild their lives and this Valentine’s Day we want more people to talk about this sensitive and important issue.
Why do we fund research?
We fund research to improve how we can stop, treat and support people to rebuild their lives after stroke. Learn more about the research we fund.
