NLV No Longer Vulnerable
No Longer Vulnerable (NLV) is an integrated program pioneered as a new and effective way to enable positive change for the people. It was implemented through the engagement of civil society organisations. The program aimed at improving health outcomes relating to HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and water related infections and diseases, increase and sustain food security and livelihoods, and increase access to social protection and socio-economic rights.
Overall, the program performed well in supporting partners to ensure programs effectively targeted and reached vulnerable groups. This included disability inclusion and child protection. Comprehensive data provided clear evidence of the many benefits experienced by women, children and people living with disabilities across the NLV duration. Indeed, there is clear evidence to indicate that partners deeply valued NLV and have contextualised it to their programming contexts and communities. This is significant given the wide range of partner organisations and the willingness to embrace a new way of programming built upon integration and relevance to the South African context.
