Doping prevention - Info website on drug abuse and doping

The project aimed to harmonize the knowledge about the medical side effects of drug abuse in sports throughout Europe and to present it to the general public. In collaboration with international doping experts a website with information on the way the human body reacts to the 15 most commonly used doping substance groups, and what long- and short-term effects come from the use of these substances and medications was created. The website presents extensive background information on the inner workings of the human body, as well as educational material on doping side-effects. Translations into 20 European languages will allow teachers and trainers throughout the European Union and beyond to use the material on doping prevention.
