The following survey is designed for polio survivors, living in Australia, who were born from 1975 onwards.
Polio Australia is currently developing specific resources and supports to assist younger survivors to manage their condition into the future. Most of the current information on the Late Effects of Polio (LEoP) has been developed with older Australian or European polio survivors in mind, which means that younger polio survivors are not connecting with either Polio Australia or the state Polio Networks.

The Late Effects of Polio (LEoP) can become apparent from 15 years following the initial infection and include a range of new symptoms resulting from bio-mechanical and/or neurological decline; these symptoms can have potentially debilitating health effects. Polio Australia's vision is that all polio survivors in Australia have access to appropriate health care and the support required to maintain independence and make informed life choices.
