Polio Australia is the only national peak body representing Australia’s polio survivors. We are committed to standardising polio information and service provision across Australia so that all polio survivors have access to appropriate health care to best manage their chronic condition.

Polio Australia works with a range of treating health professionals to promote activities that raise awareness of the late effects of polio and/or post-polio syndrome through continuing professional development and patient education.

This website can be accessed by both health professionals and polio survivors to provide a broad range of online information and resources to help identify, diagnose, and manage the late effects of polio and/or post-polio syndrome.

However, many polio survivors still report great difficulty in obtaining correct diagnosis and treatment for polio-related problems. Therefore, both treating health professionals and polio survivors are keen to find practitioners who have some knowledge of and/or experience in working with polio survivors.

If you are interested in being included on Polio Australia’s Health Professionals Register, please add your details below.
