World Sleep Day 2024

Thorax & BMJ Open Respiratory Research Sleep Collection

World Sleep Day is March 15, 2024. World Sleep Day delegates and sleep health advocates across the world will take action in their local communities, clinics, and countries to raise awareness of sleep health. The theme for the 2024 World Sleep Day is Sleep Equity for Global Health. Sleep is essential to health, but measurable differences in sleep health persist across populations across the world, creating additional burdens and reinforcing health inequities. Find below the latest papers from Thorax & BMJ Open Respiratory Research on sleep medicine. Share using the #WorldSleepDay online.
