The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has produced two educational toolkits on the issues of sexual harassment and abuse, and healthy body image in sport.  

Sexual harassment and abuse (SHA)

The IOC's sexual harassment and abuse resource contains a series of videos presenting case scenarios on various issues related to sexual abuse.

The videos are followed by useful tools, information and advice on how to address issues such as:

  • homophobia
  • gender harassment
  • sexual abuse
  • sexual harassment

Healthy body image (HBI)

The IOC has produced these four videos about healthy body image, which provide information about the female athlete triad as well as the related health implications.

These tools are aimed at:

  • athletes
  • parents
  • coaches
  • support staff
  • administrators
