The Hong Kong Sports Institute Doping Control Program - Past, Present, and Future
By Dr. Yvonne Yuan
The Hong Kong Sports Institute Doping Control Program has just passed it tenth anniversary. Together with the recent changes in policy of the local sporting community, it will be an appropriate time to review and define new directions for the program. This presentation will turn back the clock to show to the audience how the program was developed into its present form. Difficulties and challenges encountered during the course will be shared and discussed. The existing program will also be compared to the model of best practice as suggested by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Participants will also be updated on the latest development in Therapeutic Use Exemption and Whereabouts Information requirements as suggested by WADA.
