At a meeting of international experts of Disorders Of Sex Development (DSD) in Athletes on 17-18 January, organised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Florida International University (FIU) and jointly financed by the IOC and International Athletics Foundation (IAF), the following conclusions were reached:
• That sport authorities, in conjunction with the relevant medical authorities, have a responsibility to follow up on cases of DSD that arise under their jurisdiction
• That there be an increase in education and awareness of DSD within the sport community
• That PPHE (pre participation health examinations) are important for the purpose of identifying athletes with DSD
• That precise diagnosis should be established expeditiously utilizing requisite expertise
• That a management plan be drawn up if treatment is necessary (recommended)
• To establish strategically located centres of excellence at which athletes with DSD can, if necessary, be diagnosed and treated
• That rules be put in place to determine eligibility of athletes for sport competition on a case-by-case basis both prior to and following diagnosis of a DSD, including when an athlete is undergoing treatment for DSD or refuses treatment for a DSD
