The Medicine Congress is planned to organize in Slovenia or Brazil.  The concern in meat contamination with some prohibited substance was also raised for discussion. Some interesting information in anti-doping was acknowledged and focused.

Because of some limited financial support from FIVB, the number of doping tests in AVC events may be reduced.
