Abstract


In 2012 Russia ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which provides for the creation of an accessible environment for disabled people, ensuring their rights to work, medical care, education and full participation in public life. This is the fundamental basis on which the social policy of the state in relation to the disabled persons is currently being built. The strategic direction of the social policy of the state is the rehabilitation and habilitation of disabled people, the effectiveness of which depends on the completeness of the study of the epidemiological picture of the spread of disability and the need for various methods of rehabilitation and habilitation in citizens with limited life activity due to violations of the body’s functions. The article presents information characterizing the epidemiological picture of the disability of the population in the Russian Federation, taking into account the main age categories. Data on the total number of disabled people receiving various types of rehabilitation and habilitation services in the Russian Federation are also presented. There are highlighted problematic issues, the solution of which is necessary for the implementation of the social policy of the state.
