Unfortunately,There's no vaccine to prevent HIV infection and no cure for AIDS. 
To help prevent the spread of HIV:
* Use a new condom every time you have sex.
*drug Truvada. Use of the combination drug emtricitabine-tenofovir (Truvada) can reduce the risk of sexually transmitted HIV infection in those who are at high risk.  
* Tell your sexual partners if you have HIV.It's important to tell anyone with whom you've had sex that you're HIV-positive. Your partners need to be tested and to receive medical care if they have the virus. They also need to know their HIV status so that they don't infect others.
* Use a clean needle. If you use a needle to inject drugs, make sure it's sterile and don't share it. 
* If you're pregnant, get medical care right away. If you're HIV-positive, you may pass the infection to your baby. But if you receive treatment during pregnancy, you can cut your baby's risk significantly.
