Due to severe illness and lack of support, we sadly have to inform you that Polio-Echo will no longer exist as a charity organization from the 31st December 2017 onwards. However, we have arranged that this website with all the information regarding poliomyelitis and PPS will be shown for a further five years and will close on the 31st December 2022.

From an idea over ten years ago between Professor Kai Paschen MD and myself, we worked together to fill the information gaps of the existing self-help polio organizations in Germany and beyond in English and German in the form of this website with text, audio, animations & films covering all areas in regard to the illness, the after effects, treatment, etc. We also produced two extensive information brochures in German and English: (Polio & PPS Besser Verstehen and A Better Understanding of Poliomyelitis & PPS – both 96 pages), which are available through Amazon.

We were a small team of not more than half a dozen who managed this extensive project and a few members in the background who gave their moral support. I would like to express my humble thanks to all those who have helped create and keep it going.”

Thank you and keep well!

Yours Aye

Tom House
