Estonian Anti-Doping Agency - EADA

Estonian Anti-Doping Agency (EADA) promotes healthy and fair sport, carrying out doping testing and anti-doping education and developing international anti-doping cooperation.

The activities of the EADA are reviewed by the supervisory board consisting of four members. EADA was established by the Estonian National Olympic Committee in 2007, before that the private entity Estonian Anti-Doping Centre was responsible for the anti-doping activities.

Eesti Antidopingu (EAD) missiooniks on edendada tervislikku ja ausat sporti viies läbi kvaliteetset dopingukontrolli, erinevatele sihtgruppidele mõeldud antidopingualast haridustööd ja anda oma panus riiklikku ja rahvusvahelisse antidopingu alasesse koostöösse.

Eesti Antidoping on loodud EOK ja Eesti Antidopingu Keskuse poolt 03.aprillil 2007.a.  Asutusel on neljaliikmeline nõukogu, kelle määrab ametisse EOK. 

Three staff members work in EADA: Kristel Berendsen, the board member (fulfilling the tasks of CEO), Gea Muru, the testing manager and Elina Kivinukk, the education manager. 

In the field of education numerous athletes have been informed regarding the doping test procedures, TUEs and reporting in ADAMS via sport federations or face-to-face consultations. Since March 2014 a new member of staff, education manager, joined, and this enabled to have more systematic training activities to various target groups.

Main target groups are elite and young athletes, coaches, media, sport organisations. Basics of the antidoping issues have been described and as 2015 approached, the new Code had been introduced.

In 2014 over 2200 people participated in several educational events. Almost half of them were students, including sports students. About 400 athletes (mainly youth athletes) participated in anti-doping education events regarding the new code, prevention work and doping control procedure. In spring 2014 visiting lessons were delivered to 17 schools regarding the spirit of sport and the dangers of doping. By spring 2015 it is planned to launch an e-learning module on anti-doping for amateur athletes.

Igapäevast tegevust viivad ellu juhatuse liige Kristel Berendsen, testijuht Gea Muru ning hariduse ja koolituse projektijuht Elina Kivinukk. Käsunduslepingutega on sihtasutuses dopinguproove läbi viimas 12 dopingukontrolli ametnikku (testijat).

EAD haridustöö intensiivistus alates 2014. aasta märtsist, kui asus tööle hariduse ja koolituse projektijuht. 2014. aastal koolitati kokku üle 2200 inimese, neist pooled kooliõpilased. Suur osa haridustööst oli suunatud uue WADA koodeksi tutvustamisega tipp- ja noorsportlastele, spordiametnikele ning -meediale. Rahastuse said kaks rahvusvahelist projekti, e-õppeprogramm harrastussportlastele (UNESCO) ja antidopingu saadikud (Erasmus+).

EAD-le loodi uus visuaalne identiteet, uuendati kodulehekülge ning avati Facebook-leht. Samuti valmis ravimite register, kust saab kontrollida Eestis müüdavate ravimite staatust vastavalt WADA keelatud ainete nimekirjale.
