Instructions aimed at resolving problems facing people with disabilities

November 25, 2011

Dmitry Medvedev approved a list of instructions drawn up following a meeting with people with disabilities and members of NGOs representing their interests on November 16, 2011. 

The presidential instructions concern, in particular, improvements to the Russian Federation labour laws in order to facilitate distance-working arrangements for people with disabilities, above all the possibility of working from home via the internet, and also support for the INVA MEDIA TV channel.

The instructions sent to the Public Health and Social Development Ministry concern specialised computer equipment for visually impaired people, the quality of wheelchairs, and medical and social examinations.

Separate instructions have also been sent to the Presidential Executive Office and the Education and Science Ministry.
