Furthermore, both EPEC strains equally harbored most virulence genes (eae, bfpA, espB, espD, tir, nleB, map, espJ, espL, espC, espZ, espH
, ler, espG, nleE, nleF, cesT, espP, nleD, and nleC), except for espL and nleE genes, which were present only in the prototype strain.
Some of the information sought by the assessments relate to the four most epidemiology-related ESPH
. * These include 1) monitoring health status to identify and solve community health problems; 2) diagnosing and investigating health problems and health hazards in the community; 3) evaluating effectiveness, accessibility, and quality of personal and population-based health services; and 4) conducting and evaluating research for new insights and innovative solutions to health problems.
