In October 2012, 60 members of the polio community made the trip to Canberra for Polio Awareness Month – most of whom met with their local Members of Parliament to discuss the total lack of support being given to Australia’s polio survivors from the federal government.


Polio Australia is, once again, asking for polio ‘campaign heroes’ to join us at Parliament House, Canberra, on Wednesday, 29th October 2014, as the main event in this year’s national Polio Awareness month.
