Generally yes: There is a variety of anti HIV drugs and at least some are suitable for almost every one. The side effects vary with different patients.

It depends: There are now over thirty different options for the HIV cocktail used to treat HIV infected humans. It would be very rare for any one individual to not have at least one treatment options. But, if the individual in question has a virus that has mutated and become resistant to treatment then there could be difficulties in treatment. Please see an HIV expert for your care.
