Malta Independent - - SPORT -

The World Anti-Dop­ing Agency says it is pri­or­i­tiz­ing re­search on the ex­tent of dop­ing in sports.

WADA says its group of ex­perts on dop­ing preva­lence will meet next month to re­view a long-de­layed study pub­lished this week that pointed to wide­spread dop­ing at the 2011 track world cham­pi­onships in Daegu, South Korea.

It added that study­ing preva­lence "has been es­tab­lished as one of WADA's key 2017-2018."

WADA called the newly pub­lished study , which it funded, "an im­por­tant step for the fu­ture and in re­fin­ing a tool to as­sess the preva­lence of dop­ing."

It added that "WADA in­tends to build on this study in the fu­ture" and that bet­ter un­der­stand­ing dop­ing preva­lence "will al­low us to more ac­cu­rately eval­u­ate the suc­cess of de­tec­tion, de­ter­rence and preven­tion pro­grams." pri­or­i­ties for
