Association of ostomy patients ASTOM - 30 years!

Association of ostomy patients ASTOM - 30 years!

  Dear friends!

Today is the birthday of the Association of ostomy patients "ASTOM"!

We are 30 years old!


The Association of ostomy patients "ASTOM" was registered by the Department of Justice of the city of Moscow on March 25, 1993. The organization was created by ostomy patients in the most difficult time for our country - in the dashing 90s, with complete lawlessness, with a legal collapse, lack of money in the country, and even more so with the allocation of money to finance social support for the disabled and other socially unprotected sections of society. The issue of gratuitous provision of ostomy patients with important medical products for stoma care, as a fundamental condition for the medical and social rehabilitation of such people and their integration into society, was not on the agenda of either the federal government or the health and social development authorities. Moreover, vital technical means of rehabilitation of stoma patients were in short supply even in commercial sales. There was no Internet, online stores and online pharmacies. In ordinary pharmacies, at best, one could find antediluvian colostomy bags on the belt of the Kazan plant of polymer products. Stoma patients used improvised means and their own “inventions”, or stoma care products were brought by friends or relatives from abroad.

The activation of socially responsible people in the early 1990s, the manifestation of the first sprouts of public initiative, solidarity based on faith in the progressive democratic development of our society, led to the rapid development of public organizations. One of these sprouts was our public organization of ostomy patients "ASTOM", which turned out to be a locomotive and an important link in the development of the process of rehabilitation of ostomy patients in Russia.

For 30 years, the path has not been easy. Side by side, the ASTOM association with leading medical specialists, with health and social protection authorities, with domestic and foreign manufacturers of vital stoma care products, in the format of social partnership with executive and legislative authorities, have done a lot of work in the field of medical and social rehabilitation ostomy patients. The legislative base has been significantly developed in terms of free provision of stoma patients with special technical means of rehabilitation, without which integration into society of this category of persons is impossible.

Ostomy patients throughout Russia with the status of a disabled person receive stoma care products free of charge. Also, in many regions of Russia, ostomy patients without the status of a disabled person receive stoma care products free of charge. The norms for providing stoma care products are set at the level of world standards. The assortment is varied. Domestic, Russian, production of high-quality stoma care products is developing.

There are still many tasks and problems to be solved. But we are sure that we will cope, because we are with you - with socially active patients, doctors and nurses, leaders of public organizations of stoma patients, manufacturers of stoma care products, socially responsible representatives of health and social protection authorities, authorities! And together we are strong!
