The worldwide epidemic of HIV/AIDS has in recent years begun to affect women, and infants born to them, in an alarming degree. Research done in a WCC program entitled "Women and Health and the Challenge of HIV/AIDS" has suggested that this situation is intimately linked both to patriarchy and irresponsible capitalism. The challenge for the church's mission is to work, on the one hand, to prevent the spread of HIV infection in very direct ways; on the other hand, it is to work for the dignity and autonomy of women in all cultures, including giving women voice and responsibility in the churches themselves.
