For her HIV awareness campaign, Wurtzbach sat down with UNAIDS-NY, which gave her vital information on the global state of HIV-AIDS and gave inputs on projects that she can collaborate. For disaster relief, she talked to the leaders of Friends Indeed, a Filipino community charity organization that sends medical, humanitarian and relief missions to the Philippines especially in times of disasters, such as after typhoon Sendong in Cagayan De Oro.

She as well sat down with the president of APICHA Community Health Center, an organization providing medical and health assistance for underserved and vulnerable people, especially Asians and Pacific Islanders, the LGBT Community and individuals living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
