The Health & Science Department’s goal is to be the guarantor of the good health and well-being of those who practice athletics.
The department's main activities include:
1)Delivering high-quality health services to athletes and their support personnel during World Athletics championships, involving site visits, health procedure verification, and sanitation oversight.
2) Conducting and promoting scientific research programs to address evolving needs in athletics practice, regulations, and recommendations. The department relies on internal resources and an international network of experts in sports medicine and science.
3) Developing and implementing comprehensive prevention and education programs, while also raising awareness about the health benefits of regular physical activity, particularly in athletics and running, among athletes and the general population.
