The following survey is designed for polio survivors, living in Australia, who were born from 1975 onwards.
Polio Australia is keen to identify the needs of the younger cohort of polio survivors in Australia, to allow us to provide necessary information and support.
"This younger cohort presents different needs and challenges to healthcare and rehabilitation, as well as education, social integration
and economic self-sufficiency, than their older counterparts in resource-abundant environments."¹
