National program

Tunisia is perfectly convinced of the harm that doping brings to its population of athletes. Thus since 1991, the country has begun to adopt legislation and a national program of fight against doping.

Regarding the program of the Agency (ANAD), it is entirely consistent with the avant-garde choices adopted by the new Tunisia and has four components:

  • At the legislative level, we can mention:

- The Act 104 of 1994 which has clearly defined doping as harmful and dangerous for athletes, thus is prohibited.

- The European Convention on Doping was approved by Tunisia in July 2003.

Similarly, Tunisia has approved the law n ° 2006-61 of 28 October 2006 of the International Convention against Doping in Sport, adopted in Paris October 19, 2005 at the 33rd Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The national anti-doping agency (ANAD) was created by Law No. 2007/54 of 8 August 2007 on the fight against doping in sport Title II sections 6 and 7.

Decree No. 2008/103 of 16 January 2008 establishes the organization and the operating procedures of the agency.

Education, Prevention and Awareness

According to the perspective of the AMA in the fight against doping, ANAD, in collaboration with various bodies (Ministry of Youth, Sports and Physical Education, Ministry of Education and Training, National Olympic Committee, NGOs ...) has developed a specific plan for the education, prevention and awareness of school youth and young athletes and their entourage.

The action plan includes the following initiatives:

  • Programming awareness days in schools (health clubs and clubs Culture and Olympic Education)
  • Animation of awareness days and information for the benefit of school sportsmen  (members of school athletic associations) to protect against this practice
  • Development and distribution of written and digital information to students in clubs and extracurricular activities
  • Production of posters, flyers and banners designed for: land covered halls, recreation, billboards, magazines and  school radios...
  • Launch of a national competition in schools' health clubs, which is a project on the fight against doping
  • Program in collaboration with the CNOT, an awareness caravan targeting athletes, including the elite's athletes
The control program

At the national level, the state is fully involved in the implementation of a monitoring program of national elites athletes since 1991, through cooperation with the Laboratory for Doping Detection of Paris.

In September 2001, our country had its own testing laboratory accredited by the IOC and WADA, first Arab and second in Africa.

Currently, ANAD has implemented a control program for all athletes in all disciplines. The control is in or out of competition (national or international), either scheduled or unannounced.

Controls are made by doping control officers (DCOs) trained and certified by ANAD.


Tunisia is open through the National Anti-Doping Agency (ANAD) and the Laboratory for Doping Detection (LNDD), to any form of cooperation with all countries, especially African, Arab and European, and in the areas of training and supervision.

Very early on, Tunisia has been involved in all processes of international cooperation in the fight against doping, in fact, our country

- Has signed the Arab Charter against Doping (1996);

- Is the third non-European country after Australia and Canada to join in the Anti-Doping Convention of the Council of Europe (2003);

- Has signed the Copenhagen Declaration;

- Has signed the International Convention of UNESCO for the Fight against Doping (2006);

- Is fully engaged in the process of consultation with member countries for the development of the World Anti-Doping Code and its revision.
