ANTI-DOPING EDUCATION

The International Paralympic Committee fully supports the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) view that the long-term solution to preventing doping is through effective values-based education programmes that can foster anti-doping behaviours and create a strong anti-doping culture.  We want athletes, coaches and other support personnel to have access to the knowledge they need to compete clean and avoid committing an anti-doping rule violation because they didn't know the rules.

For information about the IPC Anti-Doping Code and the Prohibited List visit the anti-doping home page.  Below is information, including useful links and downloads, to help educate and inform users about anti-doping.

Following the successful Tokyo 2022 anti-doping e-learning course, the IPC has again partnered with WADA to create a winter version of the course for Beijing 2022.

Designed specifically for athletes, coaches and support personnel attending Beijing 2022, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has launched the new education course on its Anti-Doping Education and Learning platform (ADEL).

ADEL for Paralympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 ', is a collaboration between WADA and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) which aims to educate and inform users – in advance – about the anti-doping programme in Beijing.  It includes information about key dates to be aware of; how to check medications and if necessary apply for a therapeutic use exemption (TUE); what whereabouts information is required during the Games; and an overview of the doping control process.   

The course is available on WADA’s ADEL platform in English, with French and Spanish to follow in the coming weeks.

For those with limited or intermittent online access, there is the option to download the course using the ‘ADEL by WADA’ mobile App and complete it offline. 

The IPC encourages all those aiming to attend Beijing 2022 to complete the course.  Anti-doping education is not only of benefit to athletes and coaches – it also helps administrators and other support personnel better understand and carry out their roles and responsibilities.
