Despite the demand for vulnerability assessment for targeting purposes, there remains no standard definition or method of measuring vulnerability for ES interventions in USAID/PEPFAR guidance materials. The purpose of this literature review is to propose a set of guidelines for defining and measuring vulnerability for targeting and program design in ES. These proposed guidelines are based on an overview of the published and grey literature on vulnerability assessment methods related to ES.
