Fifa yesterday described South Africa's medical facilities and services as some of the best in the world, saying this bodes well for an excellent 2010 World Cup.
This is what Fifa chief medical officer Jiri Dvorak said during a media briefing at Ellis Park Stadium where they were dealing with medical issues for the Confederations Cup.
Dvorak, who has been in South Africa on several occasions on an inspection tour in the build-up to the Festival of Champions, described the facilities as "state of the art".
"We are able to deal with all medical emergencies, like the players' injuries, fans and VIPs, thanks to the Local Organising Committee for these excellent preparations.
"We have received substantial support from the Department of Health, we are now ready for the 2010 World Cup."
On doping leading to the Confederations Cup, Dvorak said a total of 64 clubs, eight from each of the eight participating countries, have been tested.
"We are delighted that all the 64 tests done on the players were negative. We are using an accredited laboratory in Bloemfontein."
Victor Ramathesele, the organising committee's chief medical officer, commended the South African government for helping with the Confederations Cup.
"The government is playing a great role by allowing us use of the medical facilities and services. We are working closely with the Department of Health.
"We also want to thank Safa and the PSL for allowing us to use their medical officers, which for us is also one of the legacy projects of the 2010 Fifa World Cup."
Dvorak also says Fifa will introduce a new programme, to be known as "the 11+", which is aimed at helping to reduce injuries among the players.
"The 11+ is a complete warm-up to prevent injuries.
"It has proven its capacity to reduce injuries in football by up to a half. The programme should be performed by all players on all levels of play prior to training and match play."
