Member Since 2023
The South African Society for Sleep and Health (SASSH) was founded in 2021 with the primary aim of uniting all involved in sleep medicine and sleep research in South Africa to form a truly multidisciplinary group.
We aim to bring everyone involved in sleep medicine and sleep research together to form a truly multidisciplinary group. The society comprises 3 subcommittees and various multidisciplinary workstreams.
The subcommittees are a medical and dental subcommittee, one committee for allied health workers and then one which is the science committee comprised of researchers. All committees stretch across South Africa and have particular functions often linked to professional registrations with the HPCSA.
We create multidisciplinary workstreams to tackle various issues and topics which cross boundaries such as fatigue management and children and adolescent sleep.
