1649 social infrastructure facilities adapted for people with disabilities
In Primorsky Krai summed up the interim results of the program "Accessible Environment". Since the 2014, the regional authorities have more than doubled the number of social infrastructure facilities accessible to people with disabilities - 1649 is now recognized as such.

According to the Department of Labor and Social Development of the Primorsky Territory, to create a facilitated environment - the opportunities for barrier-free access in the social sphere for people with limited mobility - for three years of the program in the region was sent 250 million rubles. Due to these funds more than 800 objects of social infrastructure were adapted.

“Where it was required, ramps, handrails, lifts appeared, doorways were expanded somewhere, tactile tiles were laid, equipment for people with visual impairments, hearing impairment, and the musculoskeletal system was acquired. In the cities of Bolshoy Kamen and Fokino, buses have been purchased, and in Vladivostok, a trolleybus equipped for the transportation of disabled people, ”the department said.

The 2017 million rubles is planned for the 80 year for the implementation of the program “Accessible Environment” in Primorye. The subsidy to 45 million rubles is provided by the federal budget, 34 million rubles - funds from the regional budget.

The main idea of ​​the federal program, which came to the region three years ago, is to ensure the rights of people with disabilities to freely visit health care facilities, sports, culture, education, social protection, road transport infrastructure. In addition, “Accessible Environment” provides for activities aimed at involving people with disabilities in the full life of society.

Director of the department Lilia Lavrentieva emphasizes that public organizations of disabled people are active assistants at any stage of the "Accessible Environment" program.

"It is important for us to know the opinion of the people for whom this program works. No one will better say about the needs and needs of people with disabilities than the disabled themselves. Undoubtedly, the effectiveness of the program directly depends on how accurately it will be possible to fulfill all those wishes and demands that we hear from the less mobile homelands, "she said.

The vice-governor of the region Pavel Serebryakov noted that the increase in the availability of facilities for low-mobility citizens is proceeding in stages and the pace of implementation of the "Affordable Environment" program does not cause censures from public organizations of disabled people. But it is necessary to pay attention to the quality of works on adaptation, to involve public associations of disabled people in the acceptance of objects after adaptation.

According to 1 December 2016, the number of people with disabilities in Primorye slightly exceeded 120 thousand people. 6% of the total number of residents have limited health opportunities.
