Annual Event Organization

World Sleep Day Committee of the World Sleep Society organizes the annual event intending to foster better management strategies of sleep disorders, thereby preventing its burden to society.

Officially, the day has been hosted as an annual observance by the World Sleep Society since 2008.

Sleep — A Priority to Overall Health!

Sleep is considered a human privilege, which is now compromised drastically with modern life habits.

Often, the scientific community of sleep medicine (professionals and researchers) has come up with enough evidence to engrave the priority of sleep for personal health and well-being.

Volunteers all around the globe including media and celebrities organize several activities for World Sleep Day to advocate awareness for sleep health. Together, the global message on sleep endures every year.
