How about sitting her down and saying that her sister has a germs in her system that wont go away for al ong time. And that while the germs are there, at the moment they are not harmful and she cant catch it unless she does "this or that". That is the best way I can think of other than coming out and bluntly telling her the truth and that her sister might eventually die if it turns into aids.
