Vulnerability may arise from individual, community, or larger population challenges and requires different types of policy interventionsâ€”from social and economic development of neighborhoods and communities, and educational and income policies, to individual medical interventions. Values affect how society views the vulnerableâ€”as victims or sinnersâ€”and thus whether or not to provide public assistance. There are programs available to help vulnerable populations gain access to opportunities that support their full participation in society. Each provides a dedicated source of financial and technical assistance for projects and activities in their respective programming areas.
