Join World Sleep Day and contribute to improve and facilitate sleep health and happiness around the world.
World Sleep Day is an annual event sponsored by World Sleep Society (founded by WASM and WSF) to raise awareness of sleep disorders and highlight the burden that they place on society. The next World Sleep Day will be held on Friday, March 16, 2018.
Most sleep disorders are preventable or treatable, yet less than one-third of sufferers seek professional help. Sleep problems constitute a global epidemic that threatens health and quality of life for up to 45% of the world’s population. Better understanding of sleep conditions and more research into this area of medicine will help reduce the burden of sleep disorders on society.
World Sleep Day offers a world stage to interested parties to join forces and reach their audiences. Individuals and sleep centers around the world are invited to participate to teach about the importance of sleep and the preservation of high quality, sound and sufficient sleep.
