Central Athlete Injury Management System launched for training of athletes for 2024 Olympics

Youth Affairs and Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju has launched the Central Athlete Injury Management System (CAIMS) for streamlining the sports medicine and rehabilitation support offered to the athletes. It aims to provide the best of sports injury management support nearest to the athlete’s geographical location. CAIMS will help to standardize appropriate injury treatment protocol for athletes across the country.

It will start with support for athletes who are a part of the Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) development group expected to participate in 2024 and beyond. The core committee of CAIMS includes eminent top of the line experts such as Dr SKS Marya, Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala, Dr BV Srinivas and Shrikant Iyengar.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Rijiju hailed the move to start CAIMS. He said, it was long desired by everyone to have a Centralised Athlete Injury Management system in the country. The Minister said, he had seen sometimes that even for common injuries, treatment is not done in time which has led to affecting the career of the athlete.
