WADA is headquartered in Montreal, Canada, and has three regional offices serving Europe (Lausanne, Switzerland), Asia/Oceania (Tokyo, Japan), and Africa (Cape Town, South Africa). Regional offices are a key element to WADA's fight against doping in sport, increasing understanding and facilitating implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code. The offices carry out a number of duties in conjunction with the staff in Montreal, aimed at promoting a doping-free culture in sport. Roles and responsibilities include liaising with stakeholders in their respective regions, actively promoting WADA and its mission, providing information to the media and public on doping issues, and coordinating projects relating to education, communications, and Code implementation.
WADA is the international independent organization created in 1999 to promote, coordinate, and monitor the fight against doping in sport in all its forms.
