World Sleep Day (WSD) has grown steadily since its inception. The first WSD was held on March 14th 2008, under the slogan ‘Sleep well, live fully awake’.

We gave out sleep hygiene tips, advice, we had sleep diagnostic tools to show on models and therapeutic as well, such as Ventilators.
A better understanding of sleep conditions and more research into this area of medicine will help reduce the burden of sleep disorders on society.
