ANRAP, initiated in Dhaka in 1994, is a network of natural product scientists and participating laboratories in Asia working on the chemistry and pharmacology of plants and herbs used to treat and manage diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a leading cause of mortality and reduced life expectancy. The rising burden of type 2 diabetes is a major concern in healthcare worldwide. Since more than 80% of the population in developing countries depend on plants for their primary health care, ANRAP was established as a collaborative platform for multidiciplinary research on antidiabetic plants, encompassing basic, translational and clinical research. ANRAP also focuses on training of Asian young scientists and sharing of research facilities to enhance research expertise and capacity of member countries. It also provides a platform for dissemination of information and knowledge sharing through regular conduct of workshops, seminars, and conferences. The ANRAP Secretariat is located in Bangladesh University of Health Sciences (BHS), Dhaka, Bangladesh (
