Polio Australia is collecting stories from polio survivors, their families and carers to preserve our mutual history. Otherwise how will the generations to come know what it was like to contract polio before vaccines became available? Please take the time to browse the selection of stories from Australia and overseas which are currently accessible from this page. 

We encourage you to add your own story to the growing collection and to visit this page often as its contents expand over time. Stories can be emailed or posted to us (our contact details) and are welcome in any format – hand-written, typed, audio recordings, photographs, movies, videos and more are all most welcome. Originals can be returned.

To suggest a new link to add to those below, please drop a line to our Webmaster with the details and we will check it out.
