Education & Prevention

Education & Prevention Tools

The World Anti-Doping Agency offers many different tools to assist stakeholders with their education programs and help them educate target groups with suitable activities. There are tool kits of activities customized for Coaches, Teachers, Program Officers and Sport Physicians, and many different brochures providing anti-doping information. Also, WADA has created interactive computer games such as the Play True Quiz and Play True Youth Quiz, and other tools such as card games. Books and videos exploring numerous subjects related to the fight against doping in sport are also available.

Sport Values in Every Classroom - TOOLKIT

The toolkit, which is a free, cross-curricular resource targeted at teachers of students aged 8-12 years old, was developed in partnership by the following international organizations: WADA; the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); the Agitos Foundation; the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE); the International Fair Play Committee (IFPC); and, the Olympic Foundation for Cultural Heritage (OFCH). It was based on commissioned research conducted by a team associated with the International Association for Physical Education in Higher Education (AIESEP).

Awareness & Outreach

WADA promotes a social awareness campaign that aims to familiarize audiences with clean sport messages. WADA’s Outreach Program can be used to reach athletes during sports events of all kinds. The Outreach Model was created to provide stakeholders with tools to deliver their own awareness activities.

The Anti-Doping e-Learning platform (ADeL) offers access to all topics related to clean sport and anti-doping. It offers courses for athletes, coaches, doctors, administrators, parents and anyone interested in learning more about anti-doping and protecting the values of clean sport. ADeL currently includes the following modules:

Education Guidelines

Education Guidelines & Information outline current, accurate, practical information to help protect clean sport and ensure compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code. These documents ensure stakeholders have the information they need, so that they can abide by anti-doping rules and regulations.

WADA is committed to improving evidence-based doping prevention strategies through social science research.

Understanding the fundamental differences between athletes who choose to compete clean and those who resort to doping or why some athletes decided to dope – despite being well aware of the harmful effects of doping and of anti-doping rules - will assist in ensuring that doping prevention strategies are effective and efficient.
