I cannot tell you about medical aid schemes and HIV as they all differ in their benefits.
In terms of rape victims, the government now supplies antiretrovirals to rape victims as prophylaxis against possible infection. I am not sure whether this is the case in all provinces but applies to the Western Cape.
