Our sleep society is the only sleep medicine society in Bulgaria that brings together physicians with different specialties that work in the sleep field from all around the country. We are the legitimate successor of the first Bulgarian sleep society called Bulgarian Society of Sleep Medicine. We are the national society of Bulgaria, member of the Assembly of the National Sleep Societies (ANSS) of the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS). We have at present 65 members, physicians, specialists in neurology, pulmonology, cardiology, otorhinolaryngology, physiology, pediatrics, etc.

Our goals are to promote sleep in Bulgaria by means of:

– organizing campaigns to promote knowledge on sleep disorders and sleep in general
– impose standards for good medical practice in sleep medicine
– promote politics for better treatment of patients with sleep disorders
– stimulating and organizing the foundation of patient societies for patients with sleep disorders
– stimulating physicians in Bulgaria to specialize in sleep medicine
– supporting and distributing ESRS and WSS activities in Bulgaria
