Anti-Doping Information & Education
Basic Principle and Primary Goal
The basic principle for information and education programs for doping-free sport is to preserve the spirit of sport, as described in the introduction to the Code, from being undermined by doping. The primary goal of the IFF Anti-Doping education and information programs is prevention. The objective is to prevent the intentional or unintentional use by athletes of Prohibited Substances and Prohibited Methods.
