Petition EP 2007


Our vision is of a Europe where people with polio and Post Polio Syndrome have all the resources they need to lead full active, independent and integrated lives and of a world where polio is completely eradicated.


The European Polio Union will:-

  1. Collect data on people with polio and Post Polio Syndrome in Europe and make it available for every European country and for researchers.
  2. Create an internationally accessible web site for data in relation to polio and Post Polio Syndrome medical treatments, specialised doctors and health institutions, diagnostic criteria, best practice treatments etc.
  3. Encourage co-ordinated research into ways to improve the lives and treatment of people with polio and Post Polio Syndrome.
  4. Campaign to ensure the need for continued polio-vaccination programmes in both Europe and the rest of the world and that it is high on the health agenda.
  5. Produce a validated information bank of positive help to arrest the deterioration of people with Post Polio Syndrome and ensure its dissemination and availability to all those who need it.

We are committed to working equally across all countries in Europe and to strive for greater recognition of the issues facing those affected by polio and Post Polio Syndrome.

We therefore call upon The European Union to ensure Post Polio Syndrome is correctly acknowledged in all member states and that significant resources are put into its research, treatment and information requirements.

I, the undersigned, being a member of the European Parliament, hereby support this declaration:-
