KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JACDO) says it is partnering with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in “an on-going drive to further build capacity”.
JADCO in a release Tuesday afternoon said that its partners would be in Jamaica for an official visit between March 11 and 12.
“Currently, the restructured JADCO, working in concert with its recently appointed Chairman and Commissioners, continues to refine and upgrade its operational procedures by recruiting employees to meet its required staff complement, as well as to restructure and increase its public education and testing procedures, the anti-doping agency said in its release.
JADCO added that it has partnered with the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) to host regional Junior Athletes Anti-Doping Education Workshops.
JADCO said that during February, three successful workshops were held at the Jamaica Conference Centre (JCC), the G C Foster College of Physical Education and Sport, and the Church Teachers’ College.
Two additional workshops are scheduled, the first at the Wexford Hotel in St James, on Wednesday, March 12, and another at the Tropical Lagoon Resort in Portland, on Wednesday, March 19, JADCO said.
