For WE'RE STILL HERE! Week, October 11-17, 2015, PHI asked its Members - What activities do you now enjoy that were previously impossible to access? What places have you now visited that were previously inaccessible? Send us a photo that illustrates the ability to access the activity or location.
PHI encouraged its Members to help document that people who had polio are still here, active and involved thanks to laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act or the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
WE’RE STILL HERE! was established in 2007 by Post-Polio Health International (PHI) as an annual campaign to educate the healthcare community and the public that there are survivors of polio still in need of health care and still making the world a better place for all people with disabilities.
