Multiple-Drug Resistance (MDR) is a mechanism that renders the ineffectiveness of one or more than one antimicrobial agents shown by disease causing microorganisms. MDR has become one of the major public health challenges as initially, the MDR species were restricted only to hospitals, but now they are found everywhere. Due to the slow advancements in the discovery of new or different antibiotics against the MDR organisms, the medical society is facing great challenges in the treatment of infections caused by resistant microorganisms. This chapter outlines the challenges involved in drug discovery, and treatment to fight and prevent MDR infections. 

Keywords: Antibiotics, Drugs, MDR, Microorganisms, Pathogens, Proteins.
