ANSORP was organized as the first multicountry collaborative study group in Asia for the surveillance of antimicrobial resistance. Organization of the ANSORP was first initiated by Prof. Jae-Hoon Song (Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan Univ., Seoul, Korea) in 1996 to perform the international surveillance studies on antimicrobial resistance in the Asian region.

Since its inception in 1996, ANSORP has been performing many international surveillance studies on antimicrobial resistance in major pathogens and infectious diseases in Asian countries. ANSORP surveillance data have first revealed that Asian countries are the epicenter of antimicrobial resistance throughout the world with the highest prevalence rates of antimicrobial resistance in major pathogens.

The ANSORP network consists of more than 120 hospitals in 14 countries/areas in Asia as of 2019. ANSORP has created a new model of international cooperation, consisting of diverse countries including developed, developing and underdeveloped countries in the region.
