The Anti-Doping Convention: an instrument of international co-operation
Doping is a hindrance to sports ethics and a threat to the health of athletes. Historically, doping is the first of the Council of Europe's concerns in sport. As early as 1967 the Committee of Ministers produced the first international legal instrument on this matter. Since then, the Organisation has continued to strengthen its commitment to eliminating doping from sport. The Anti-Doping Convention was adopted in 1989. It was followed by an additional protocol in 2002.

Ad hoc European Committee for the World Anti-Doping Agency
CAHAMA is a committee of experts responsible for coordinating the positions of the States Parties to the European Cultural Convention acting on behalf of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). In doing so, it reflects the States' position on a variety of subjects in the form of a mandate which answers the questions put forward by WADA as consultations. CAHAMA and, by extension, Europe's position is then conveyed by a designated representative at WADA's Foundation Board and Executive Committee meetings.
The Monitoring Group of the Anti-Doping Convention
The Monitoring Group is the body in charge of overseeing how the State Parties implement the Anti-Doping Convention. In order to do so, it co-operates with international stakeholders such as the the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Sports Movement and the international sports federations, alongside National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs) and other Council of Europe bodies such as the European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ), the Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO) and the European Court of Human Rights.
