I don't think an HIV vaccine that will be effective for those who are already infected will be available any time soon. You don't indicate what your husband's CD4 count or HIV viral load are, and so whether HIV treatment is required or not. In most cases, HIV treatment is now very effective and will result in controlling the virus and helping people lead normal lives.
