 Mufleh, who is also Head of the Executive Office of the Council of Arab Social Ministers, stated during the 15th session of the Conference of States Parties to the CRPD in New York that the Kingdom, equipped with human talents and despite limited natural resources, had done more than many countries in advancing the rights of people with disabilities.
 Jordan's institutions went to great lengths to build education platforms for hearing and vision impaired students and provide them with medical and psychosocial support during the coronavirus outbreak, he noted.
 Mufleh presided over a meeting of Arab delegations attending the session to discuss implementing CRPD-related decisions of the Council of Arab Ministers for Social Affairs under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
 The Arab League also hosted a meeting titled "Disability in Pandemics and Crises," where Jordan was confirmed to host the Global Disability Summit in 2025 in collaboration with the German government.
