PolioToday.org is published by the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. The website is designed to raise awareness of post-polio syndrome and to be a resource for polio survivors. Dr. Jonas Salk, who developed the first safe and effective polio vaccine, founded the Salk Institute in 1960.

Excert from email I received from Polio Globel Eradication Inititive:
"You may also wish to consider linking to Rotary International's PolioPlus website. Rotary as you know is the private sector arm of the polio eradication effort, and they have lots of interesting information about the global effort."
This is a list of notable people who have survived the infectious disease poliomyelitis.
In the United States, polio was the most notorious disease of the 20th century until AIDS appeared. On April 12, 1955, it was announced that Jonas Salk, using March of Dimes donations from millions of people, had developed a vaccine to prevent polio.
