The Caribbean Regional Anti-Doping Organization (Caribbean RADO) is the secretariat for doping issues in its 15 member territories in the Caribbean.
Caribbean RADO seeks to elicit excellence from athletes by ensuring that all sport is free from doping and is played fairly. As much as athletes are the most critical stakeholders, we collaborate with their support personnel, coaches, sports administrators, national and international federations, parents, doctors and other health professionals, and particularly the youth. The Caribbean RADO is a member of the Institute of National Anti-Doping Organizations (INADO) and is supported by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
