MOSCOW, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. A new long-term national initiative to create a comfortable living environment for the disabled will be drafted next year, Russian Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Maksim Topilin said on Monday.
Plans will build on the current "Available Environment" program running until 2015, he told the program's coordinating committee. But the "very important question that still remains is about continuation of the program,” he said.
“We should understand that by 2014, it is necessary to decide what we will do in 2016-2020,” the minister said, adding that the new program should include development of a rehabilitation system.
Centers and institutions for rehabilitating the disabled have been specified by Russia's government in orders to the labor, health, finance, education and science ministries for the program up to 2020.
"Available Environment" was launched in Russia in 2011, implying that all aspects of life, including education, health care, culture, social care and sport, should be available for those with disabilities.
In 2014, more than four billion rubles will be allocated for Russian regions to implement the program.
