PNG Sports Anti-Doping Organisation

The Papua New Guinea Sports Anti-Doping Organisation (PNGSADO) was established by the Papua New Guinea National Olympic Committee on 16th June 2006 following a partnership agreement between the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Oceania National Olympic Committee (ONOC) and the International Rugby Board (IRB) in 2004. The main reason was to assist countries in the region that did not have anti-doping programs and set up their national anti-doping organizations with the necessary authority and responsibility to plan, coordinate, implement, monitor and advocate doping control in sports.

World Anti-Doping Agency has a regional office based in Suva, Fiji called Oceania Regional Anti-Doping Organisation (ORADO) and Papua New Guinea is a member of ORADO.

On October 12, 2009 the International Convention for the Elimination of Doping in Sports was ratified by the Papua New Guinea Government. This enables PNGSADO to apply for funding to UNESCO for its programs.

In preparation for 2015 Pacific Games, the PNGSADO is working towards building capacity to fulfill its roles and responsibilities, and run specific Anti-Doping programs for athletes, coaches and managers.
