The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) seeks to foster a doping free culture in sport. It combines the resources of sport and government to enhance, supplement and coordinate existing efforts to educate athletes about the harms of doping, reinforce the ideal of fair play and sanction those who cheat themselves and their sport.
WADA was established as an independent, non-governmental organisation on 10 November 1999, as a result of provisions of the Lausanne Declaration on Doping in Sport. The Agency’s headquarters are located in Montreal, Canada.
The 2005 Prohibited List (to come into effect on January 1, 2005) is now available on the WADA website , together with a Summary of Modifications for 2005 and the 2005 Monitoring Programme.
The ILS Secretary General met David Howman, Director General of the World Anti-Doping Agency, and discussed the future ILS-WADA relations.
