And the resistance occurs when bacteria in the same way that reduce or eliminates the effectiveness of drug, chemicals or other agents designed to cure or continue to multiply causing more harm. Bacteria can do this through several mechanisms are example of antibiotic resistance include methicilline resistance, staphylococcus aureus [ARSA]. Penicillin resistance enterococcus and multi-drug resistance mycobacterium tuberculosis [MDRTB] which is resistance to two tuberculosis drug isonized and rifampicilin. while antimiclobial resistance happens when microorganism (such as bacteria, fungi, virus and parasite) change when they are exposed to antimiclobial drugs such as antibiotics, antfungals and anthlmintics. The microorganisms that develop antimicrobial resistance are sometimes referred to as 'superbugs'. As a result the medicines become inffective and infections persist in the body increasing the risk of spread to others. Antimicrobial resistance is a global public health challenge,
