The visit was arranged by the Makati Medical Center Foundation. People living with HIV from outside the hospital will also be brought in to meet Wurtzbach.

HIV awareness is one of the beauty queen’s advocacies.

Wurtzbach was crowned as Miss Universe in Las Vegas last month after an infamous blunder watched by millions on television worldwide.

American host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner at first — Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez. He later corrected himself, announcing that Wurtzbach of the Philippines is the real Miss Universe.

Wurtzbach is in the Philippines for a series of events, including a grand homecoming parade, various tributes and a meeting with President Benigno Aquino III. IDL
