An important step towards the implementation of the initiative shall be the building of an information system, which will allow taking into account the needs of disabled people for developing an individual approach to the production of the RE, providing the ability to choose products and, what is important, ensuring further social support to people using these goods.

Gulnaz Kadyrova

Deputy Minister of the Industry
and Trade of the Russian Federation

Surely, the issues of communication are becoming increasingly important with the development of the society. And we must pay attention to this problem, especially to people with reduced mobility, some health restrictions Actually, this market is formed by the Bureau of Medical and Social Expertise; they prescribe specific products from the list they are notified of. Given that we are developing, this list of RE shall be updated from time to time.

Roman Aranin

General Director of Observer, LLC

Speaking about the problems, that an end user has to face, it worth noting that actually state procurements cover at least 85 pct of the market, and only the remaining 15 pct account for direct purchases (individually or via sponsors).

Dmitry Yanin

Chairman of the Managing Board of the International Confederation of Consumer Societies

Chairman of the Managing Board of the International Confederation of Consumer Societies Dmitry Yanin proposed to structure the tasks aimed at the development of industry into separate segments and to prepare a draft of the corresponding roadmap. There is a problem of accounting, a problem of classification, a problem of interaction of social protection bodies, the Ministry of Industry and Trade in term of support for the production. If such support is required, in which form it shall be carried out: loans, grants, etc.? Taking into account the users opinion, accordingly, we are getting to the scenario of public councils with the customers. This has really a weight of a road map, because, having heard everything discussed here, I realize that the market is small, with a high pressure of the public procurement and all the accompanying drawbacks. As it was noted, 9 bln rubles is the whole market; if 85 pct is the public procurement, so live money from the population amounts to 1.52 bln rubles. And surely, counting upon these 1.52 bln rubles, it is difficult to create services such as Yandex market, where only declarations of manufacturer are published, but there is no audit of such declaration, we havent even such a level of information in this area.

German Gref

Chairman of the Boards of Trustee of the Deafblind Support Foundation

The initiative to create the Foundation was announced on April 8, 2014 at the meeting of the Supervisory Board of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives and was supported by its Chairman Vladimir Putin. This a correct and actual product.

The tradition of care for the deafblind in Russia has a 105-year history. It is interesting that it was in Petersburg, in mid-May 1909, virtually on the same days, the Charter was approved of the first such society, consisting of private benefactors, enthusiasts, devotees who drew attention to this group of disabled people, particularly vulnerable at all times. Then and now, one of the main tasks was creating conditions for development of the deafblind and drawing attention to their problem. It is important not to lose this tradition in our modern Russia.

A few years ago, my colleagues and I visited for the first time the Orphanage for the Deafblind in the town of Sergiev Posad. It was not some kind of noisy action, we just came on a weekend to help build a playground and to spend time with children. I still remember and wonder: how these children, whom nature has doomed to live in total darkness, fight for their future, learn and show the same talents as they healthy peers. After talking with them you understand: there are no difficulties that cannot be overcome. We just need to give a push, to create appropriate conditions, to bring modern technologies, and these kids are sure to overcome the disease and become full members of society.

The Deafblind Support Foundation is similar in its aims. An important role in achieving these goals belongs to us the Supervisory Board. At the same time, we are talking not only about material support by finances and organizational resources.

It is important for the members of the Supervisory Board to be involved in the Foundations activity, to help it in relying upon your knowledge and experience. And most importantly: being public persons, we have to try by joint efforts to change the attitude of our society to deafblind, to awaken in people a sense of understanding and charity. We all must become guides for deafblind in the world of sighted and hearing.
