To support and promote projects of all sizes at the local club, district, and international level that will improve access to quality health services for people with disabilities; strengthen rehabilitation services and include access to assistive products.
To broaden and deepen Rotarians and Rotaractors awareness of disabilities resulting from polio and enable them to improve the lives of polio survivors.
PSA was founded in 2003 as a Rotarian Fellowship whose members were individuals and groups with a common interest in polio survivors; health issues such as postpolio syndrome; polio support groups; related organizations and institutions. In 2005, the Rotary International Board of Directors recognized the value of these Fellowships and their potential for assisting RI in implementing humanitarian programs throughout the world, and formed Rotary Action Groups. In 2020, we change our name from Polio Survivors & Associates to just Polio Survivors Rotary Action Group.
You do not have to be a polio survivor to join!
