"You are not alone!" is the first message that Dr Ulysses Burley III wants to send to youth on how to deal with HIV and AIDS. Faith communities need to and are trying to create spaces where young people can ask the questions that they might not feel comfortable to discuss at home. Dr Burley is a member of the World Council of Churches' main governing bodies and of its gender advisory group.

Reading in the Bible every day inspires the members of the Lutheran World Federation and its general secretary Martin Junge to say: there are no excuses for violence against women! We are proud to be partners of the Lutheran World Federation and the World YWCA in the #NoXcuses  campaign!

We are grateful for what the Protestant Christian Batak Church (HKBP, a WCC member church) and other churches in Indonesia are doing to overcome discrimination and violence against women!

The testimony of LalChuanzauli Ralte (who thought that HIV could only contracted by sex workers and drug users until she was herself diagnosed with the virus at age 18) demonstrates the importance of supportive communities and the role faith can play both in reinforcing and in overcoming stigma.

The WCC is grateful for Prof. Dube's contributions towards HIV-competent churches, both as a former consultant of the Ecumenical HIV and AIDS Initiative in Africa (EHAIA) and as a theologian and author. An interview of Prof. Musa W. Dube is available on the WCC website at http://www.oikoumene.org/en/press-centre/news/living-with-god-in-the-context-of-hiv-and-aids

We applaud Ernestina's courage to claim her right to education, even in the face of violence! Ernestina tells how she was beaten and locked up because she did not want to get married when she was just 12 years old. Together with Ernestina and the World YWCA we say: There are NoXcuses for violence against women and girls, and there are no excuses for ignoring it!

As long as victims of sexual violence hear comments like "you must have given him the wrong signals", perpetrators will feel they have the right to do what they do. Together with Maja and the World YWCA we say: There are NoXcuses for violence against women! There are no excuses for ignoring it!

A worldwide fellowship of churches seeking Christian unity in witness and service
Introduction
The World Council of Churches is a fellowship of churches which confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the scriptures, and therefore seek to fulfil together their common calling to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
It is a community of churches on the way to visible unity in one faith and one eucharistic fellowship, expressed in worship and in common life in Christ. It seeks to advance towards this unity, as Jesus prayed for his followers, "so that the world may believe." (John 17:21)
