You need to start taking ARV's as soon as possible if you think the contact may be HIV positive - most private hospitals will have preventative treatment available in the Casualty department, or you can go to your nearest HIV clinic at the nearest provincial hospital or your municipal clinic. Cost would depend on the brand of medications they prescribe. see also http://www.who.int/hiv/topics/prophylaxis/en/
