    Hi,
    I'm looking for help to translate the bold part of this quote into English:

    La amenazadora difusión del SIDA lanza a todos un doble desafío, que también la Iglesia quiere recoger en la parte que le compete: me refiero a la prevención de la enfermedad y a la asistencia prestada a quienes han quedado afectados por ella.

    My attempt is:

    “The threatening spread of AIDS is a double challenge for all of us, the church must also play its part: I refer to the prevention of the disease and the support offered to those who have been infected”.

    any suggestions welcome
    thanks very much

    La traducción es válida aunque creo que no tiene idéntico significado
    Aunque mi inglés no es muy bueno, yo lo traduciría así:

    "the Church also wants to take part where It concerns"
    Es sólo una sugerencia

    What if you were to try the following:

    "The church also wants to take part in the issues incumbent on the religious sector, namely disease prevention and provision of support for those affected by the disease."

    I'm not sure it's exact, but it's at least another try. I hope it helps!
