Stroke epidemiology and prevention

Stroke is a devastating yet highly preventable disease. There are about 9000 strokes every year in New Zealand, 30% of which are fatal in the first year and a further 70% of survivors are left with some level of disability. We are developing interventions that are potentially widely applicable, affordable, and cost-effective, even in low resource countries with no or little access to medical services.
