Desert AIDS Project is located in Palm Springs and is often referred to as DAP.
This actually should be Desert Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome Project – DAIDSP
Ok so these experts in AIDS apparently are fine with using acronyms within acronyms.
I think this is getting out of hand.
In reality the term AIDS should be just I for Immunodeficiency.
Acquired is unnecessary as all diseases are acquired, or created.
Syndrome is unnecessary as Immunodeficiency is full of syndromes.
I is a perfect abbreviation/acronym.
This more correct version then makes Desert Aids Project, DIP when acronymized.
