Education & Awareness


The popularity of football helps provide us with a platform to raise awareness about football medicine topics.

Research, education and awareness are key elements in injury prevention, one of our key goals. Every year, FIFA conducts a number of medical courses and workshops, including on emergency medicine, at tournaments and with our member associations. We also promote education through projects and campaigns, such as the FIFA Diploma in Football Medicine. Through learning, research and awareness campaigns on topics such as sudden cardiac arrest, we continually strive to prevent injuries and share our knowledge of football medicine.
