Polio Perspectives has been published quarterly since 1988, keeping polio survivors in touch with latest news and solutions for managing the late effects of polio. In this age of technology we continue to provide a print edition, but also a full colour e-edition. To receive PP by mail or email, go to our contact page.

Polio Day is our main event annually, bringing survivors, friends, family together either in a regional or metropolitan location. This year was Warrnambool's turn. For a report and pictures of a great day at Lady Bay resort to go the Polio Perspectives Page.
The late effects of polio and/or Post Polio Syndrome are still a puzzle for many health professionals. So it is up to us to learn as much as we can about what is going wrong and how best to manage the changes. This page (Yet to be constructed) offers recent information on mental and physical challenges. Please let us know what you need to know and we will find an expert to help.
Life Skills for Polios - a light hearted handbook, is one of several publications available from PNV. Check out the books and merchandise available on the Contact Page
