When considering ‘sleep health across the globe,’ we must account for the many modifiable environmental and social factors that substantially impact sleep and contribute to differential health status across populations. These factors include (but are not limited to) housing, food, and energy insecurity, poor air quality, as well as many types of traumatic childhood experiences across the life course including war and conflict. The challenge is complex, but with international investment and transdisciplinary collaboration, it is entirely possible to advance sleep health across the globe.
