AIDS: Sida, as a medical abbreviation, most likely refers to aids (acquired immune deficiency syndrome), as translated in another language (for instance, in spanish or french). For example, in spanish, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (aids) is translated as síndrome de inmunodeficencia adquirida (sida).
