Infectious diseases are the most common health problems. Diagnosis and treatment of the bacterial diseases are ambiguous, especially in Bangladesh. Though the present condition of health care settings in Bangladesh has improved, the bacterial diseases have become more prone to the public health. Bacterial sensitivity patterns of common infections like respiratory tract infection, urinary tract infection, enteric fever, wound infection are not always attainable because of the restless use of antibiotics. Multidrug-resistant in primary infection is an emerging threat in Bangladesh. Prevention and containment of antibiotic resistance are very necessary for Bangladesh. The prior concern of this investigation is to surface the present scenario of antibiotic resistance prevailing in Bangladesh especially in Dhaka city. From the investigation, it is evident that various kinds of microbial infection have already been resistant to antibiotics and some are at the borderline. The result is prominent as it covered a wider range by comparing five different aspects like blood, urine, sputum, swab and pus samples. Moreover, in the past there has not been a single investigation conducted focusing on these five aspects altogether at a time. The establishment of an alliance and regulation indicating the use of antibiotics should consider as a national priority.
