The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO), unveiled its new website on Thursday, September 4, which can be accessed at www.jadco.gov.jm.

It was launched during a press briefing, held at the press room at the Office of the Prime Minister.

This new website is JADCO’s latest initiative to provide guidance and communicate effectively with its target audience, which includes athletes, athlete support personnel and the public.

In her address, Minister with responsibility for Sports, Hon. Natalie Neita Headley, welcomed the development of the new website.

“We have always needed to have this comprehensive website, which will allow not just Jamaicans to be able to access and be informed as to what is happening in Jamaica’s sporting landscape, but we needed a website which will (enable)  the entire world to know what is happening in sport and in anti-doping in Jamaica,” Mrs. Neita Headley said.

She added that the launching of the website demonstrates that “every effort is being made to provide multi services to our target population.”

“The plans for this user friendly, informative and accessible website have been long in the pipeline, but nothing happens before its time,” Mrs. Neita Headley said.

For his part, Executive Director of JADCO, Carey Brown, noted that athletes and athlete support personnel will benefit from the website.

The website contains information about the doping control process, banned substances and news on developments at JADCO.

It also provides users with easy access to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) E-Learning Component, and decisions made by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel (JADDP) and the Jamaica Anti- Doping Appeals Tribunal (JADAT).

JADCO now has four newly trained Doping Control Officers (DCOs), bringing the total number of DCOs to eight at the Commission.

The Commission has also secured funding from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), which will be used to train more sample collection personnel.
