World Sleep Society is a nonprofit, professional membership organization dedicated to advancing sleep health worldwide. To accomplish this mission, World Sleep Society manages a variety of programs that engage the global community of sleep physicians, researchers, and professionals as well the public. Individual members and member societies from dozens of countries form the core of World Sleep Society. Our members provide the world-class sleep medicine and science expertise needed to develop and guide programs like the biennial World Sleep congress, World Sleep Day, World Sleep Academy, and the International Sleep Research Training Program, among others.
Sleep professionals can participate in our programs by attending the biennial World Sleep congress (coming next to Rio de Janeiro in 2023) or volunteering for program development and committee assignments (open only to current members). Members of the public can help us celebrate World Sleep Day by organizing local sleep health awareness activities in their home communities—well over 200 such activities took place in 2022 alone.
