The Programme is based on three main premises. The first one is rooted in the principle of the state’s subsidiarity towards all various social groups: disabilities, seniors, people experiencing a temporary health detriment or physical fitness. Secondly, the Programme is a consequence of the sustainable development policy. This policy indicates that social development is a key factor of support for the economic progress. Thirdly, the programme results from the assessment of social and physical reality.
