Over the couple of decades the antimicrobial resistance is one of most common global public health problems not only in the developed countries but also developing countries. In the daily clinical practice antibiotics are commonly prescribed in case of respiratory tract infections, many of the genitourinary tract infections, acute of chronic gastroenteritis or other gastro intestinal symptoms, traumatized patients to prevent secondary infections. Antibiotics are commonly used to prevent and control the bacterial infection for reducing the mortalities and morbidities but its resistance has become the major public health challenge in the era of 21st century. After achieving the millennium development goal, antibiotic resistance will be one of the major stakeholders to set the sustainable developmental goals as the scenario is more endangering and life threatening than our current anticipation. A complex mechanism of interaction between genetic, pathogenic properties, environmental and host factors are related to develop antimicrobial resistance. Out of which several factors including inappropriate antibiotics practicing, patient???s illiteracy, unauthorized sale of antibiotics, inadequate supervision by drug monitoring agencies and nonhuman use of antibiotics such as animal production are modifiable. Many of the pathogens have shown highly resistance to several commonly used antimicrobials reported in various studies which is really alarming for us. So, the judicious strategies should be planned to prevent and combat against the antimicrobial resistance and make the globe livable for our generation next.
