Dennis Levy is an American community organizer and public health activist living with HIV/AIDS. He is also a long-term nonprogressor diagnosed in 1992. Levy is the CEO and founder of the Black and Latino AIDS Coalition, Inc (Blac NY), a community-based AIDS advocacy organization. It advocates on behalf of Black and Latino people with AIDS and their families and works for the prevention of HIV and AIDS. In 1998, Levy helped pass HIV Reporting and Partner Notification. It was the most controversial HIV legislation in New York State history. The legislation changed the way New York State tracked new HIV and AIDS cases via partner notification. Before the legislation, the federal government’s Ryan White Program allocated money based on the proportion of patients with AIDS in each region. The highest number of AIDS cases was in New York City among white gay men. Consequently, the white gay population received the most money. The new legislation changed this allocation to give more funding to people who were newly diagnosed with HIV infection. A majority of people with HIV diagnoses were black and Latino heterosexuals. Assemblywoman Nettie Mayersohn sponsored a bill that required people infected with HIV to notify their sexual partners. Blac NY was the only AIDS organization in New York State to support the bill. Levy engaged in heated debates in the HIV community concerning the need for establishing a system of tracking HIV infection.
