?Bahrain Olympic Committee’s Anti-Doping specialist Zainab Anwar recently attended Fifth UNESCO Conference of Parties to UNESCO’s International Convention Against Doping in Sport, held from 29 to 30 October 2015 at the Organization headquarters in Paris.
This UNESCO Convention was adopted in 2005 to strengthen the activity of the international community in combating doping and has since been ratified by 183 States.  Today, it is almost universal.  Monaco, which became a party in 2006, was one of the first ten countries to sign this important instrument.
The Conference of the Parties is a statutory meeting that takes place every two years to supervise the implementation and monitoring of the Convention in conformity with its provisions.
The 2015 Conference was marked, in particular, by the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Convention.  At this event, more than 200 participants, including numerous high-level ministerial and sports representatives, took part in the work of this important session.
In order to better combat doping, in the light of contemporary challenges and the new provisions of the 2015 World Anti-doping Code, the States Parties adopted several innovative reforms with the aim of improving the monitoring of the obligations of the Convention, its visibility and its mechanisms of governance.
The conference was chaired by Dr. Mohammed Saleh Al Konbaz of Saudi Arabia, who is the President of the Conference,
