This is a compilation of stories about the lives of women living with HIV in the Asia-Pacific region. Each woman has overcome incredible challenges to become a strong leader, advocate and role model for other HIV-positive women. These women are like diamonds, formed under immense pressure, hewn from the darkness to shine, strongest and most brilliant of all gems. Interviewing these women and crafting their stories has been one of the most joyous tasks I could have undertaken. I know each woman to some extent because they have all attended at least one of the training workshops I have conducted in the region and several have become my close friends.
