AIDS is definitely not, but HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) will definitely be able to if they bring it with them, but even if we imagine that astronauts or cosmonauts are sent into space to other planets with HIV, they will take therapy (ARVT or HART) and this means that the virus will be inactive.

HIV and AIDS are two different nosological groups. HIV infection is a disease caused by a corresponding pathogen. AIDS is a cider of secondary, that is, non-congenital immunodeficiency. Infection with HIV can occur if there is a person with HIV in the crew and there has been direct contact with his body fluids. Absolutely healthy people do not exist, in principle, even a person with HIV can fly into space. More likely to get AIDS from cosmic radiation and sterile space conditions.

there is a chance of getting sick, since everything we get sick with is taken from us, everything is packed in us, and by coincidence this or that is activated and starts killing us and those whom we overtook. this is a regularity otherwise immortality or too longevity is inevitable, then an epidemic of sucide will begin because everything ever gets bored and old age too

The virus, although simple, is in fact the result of millions of years of adaptation to the internal cellular architecture of animals on which it can parasitize. Most viruses are so narrowly specialized that they cannot infect even other types of animals, only one specific species. Rarely, a mutation occurs that makes a virus compatible with several different species at once.

And this is on Earth, where animals with such a cellular architecture have existed for billions of years. On another planet, where before the appearance of man there was not a single link of earthly evolution, viruses specializing in them simply have nowhere to come from.

Even if we assume that viruses somehow (the theory of panspermia) were transferred to a distant star - they would not have survived to this day. Genetic material in spores and viruses can exist for a long time, but not indefinitely. Cosmic rays gradually knock atoms out of the DNA chain, rendering it unusable. So if you can still talk about the theory of panspermia within the solar system, but the interstellar flight in outer space, the genetic material most likely will not withstand.

(I will explain the theory of interplanetary panspermia. Today there is a very interesting and still not contradicting scientific given a theory suggesting that at a time when Venus was not yet heated by the self-sustaining greenhouse effect, and the metal core of Mars did not stop rotating and create a magnetic field that protects its atmosphere from being blown away by the solar wind, conditions on their surface were similar to those on Earth and there life could exist. Giant meteorites falling on any of these planets necessarily throw into space a mass of debris of rock matter from the surface. Some of these debris may eventually intersect with the orbit of another planet and fall on it. The fact that this happened has been proven: in the deserts Antarctica geologists have already come across meteorites, the composition of which is identical to the Martian rocks. Iya panspermia suggests that as a result of such cataclysms, bacteria can be thrown from the surface of one planet and fall on another. Perhaps, at the initial stages, earthly life in a similar way survived cataclysms on other planets, which made the Earth absolutely unsuitable for living. This would explain the discrepancy between the data of geologists and molecular biologists. Molecular biologists, analyzing the rate of changes in the genetic code, estimated its overall age and came to the conclusion that it is almost a billion years older than the last fall of a supergiant meteorite calculated by the methods of mathematical statistics, which turned the Earth's surface into a continuous hot lava. This discrepancy can have different explanations, the theory of panspermia is considered one of the possible explanations.)

So there will be no unfamiliar viruses. But most likely, we will bring all our parasites to other planets with us. Everything will be: a runny nose in space, and cockroaches in the galley, and rats in cable wells.

In the next millions of years they will not get sick, since the source of the modern virus for humans is humans. But in general, they can get sick if there are monkeys, for example, green monkeys.
