Hello and thanks for posting.
I'm not sure about the zobo drink but garlic generally doesn't interact with HIV medications.
I'd be careful about unsupported claims of the benefits of dietary supplements. One of the best resources of unbiased information about alternative "medicines" is the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicines.
