ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on Neisseria gonorrhoea which is a wily organism that rapidly evolves into a multi-resistant bacteria and recalcitrant to single-dose antibiotics. They mention that the widespread disease demands urgent responses from every individual and community leaders to ensure public health. The need to reduce the overall prevalence and risk of infection is also highlighted to slow the spread of the disease.
