How to correct this sentence Since 1980, the aids epidemic has continued to spread widely throughout the world.
not sure what to do
The word "widely" and "throughout the world" seem redundant. You might delete one or the other.
More important, though, is this: The acronym is spelled with all caps -- AIDS -- since it stands for "acquired immune deficiency syndrome."
* aids = helps
* AIDS = acquired immune deficiency syndrome
* aides = helpers
Keep them straight.
