There are approximately one million individuals in the U. S. who survived the great polio epidemics of the 1940s and 50s. While most polio survivors recovered a high degree of function, a great number were left with permanent, severe paralysis. The Polio Survivors Association was formed in 1975 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation to promote the well being and improve the quality of life for these severely disabled polio survivors.

The Polio Survivors Association concentrates its efforts in these main areas:




The Polio Survivors Association is dedicated to education, advocacy, and support. We are not a membership organization, but encourage polio survivors to join support groups in their area. Many people do not remember the great polio epidemics of the 1940s and 50s. The Polio Survivors Association was formed to help those who can never forget.
