Education & Awareness

We have responsibility to protect the rights of “clean” and “honest” athletes and to promote “fair play” at all levels of the sport.

Education and Awareness is one of the four pillars in the BWF Integrity Framework which was developed in 2018. This framework describes the elements to protect the integrity of our sport and prevent doping, match manipulation, illegal betting and sports corruption.

The four pillars are 1) the Rules System, 2) Education & Awareness, 3) Monitoring and Investigations and 4) Judicial Processes.

At the centre of the framework are the Athletes & Entourage – including other athlete support personnel – those who work with, support and influence athletes in training, competition and in their daily lives.

BWF’s Anti-Doping Education Programme

BWF has a number of groups it is target for formal education and awareness programmes in 2022. These are:
