Member countries representatives and liaisons of the region met virtually on ….. with the participation of WADA to discuss annual matters regarding the development and implementation of anti-doping programs and to spot the light on the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the sport community in general and on anti-doping activities specifically in a critical time before the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The virtual meeting replaced the original planned annual meeting and education training that was supposed to be held in Amman in March and was cancelled due to the Pandemic. The MCRs showed commitment to the fight against doping even in the hardest times the world is facing, mainly they committed to complete the revision of their National Anti-Doping Rules to become in line with the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code by the end of the year, in addition to closely monitoring the sport community activities to seize possible opportunities for testing and distance learning where possible.
