International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health | World Sleep Day—“Sleep Equity for Global Health”

World Sleep Day is observed annually on the Friday before the northern hemisphere vernal equinox. It aims to promote the benefits of good and healthy sleep and to draw society's attention to the burden of sleep problems and to strengthen the prevention and management of sleep disorders. The theme of World Sleep Day 2024 is “Sleep Equity for Global Health”, focusing on measurable differences in sleep health among different populations around the world, reducing additional burdens and providing opportunities to eliminate health inequalities.

To further discuss research related to World Sleep Day, the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH, ISSN: 1660-4601) has collected open access academic research on the topic of sleep quality, health conditions and health-related quality of life. We want to use this special day to share new scientific knowledge in the field of sleep health disparities and to raise awareness of sleep health.
