World sleep day is an annual awareness event that was started by a group of healthcare workers and other members of the medical community focusing on sleep medicine and research. The goal of World Sleep Day is to bring together people to discuss and distribute valid and authentic information about sleep around the world. The World Sleep Day has been hosted by the World Sleep Society since 2008 and they aim to educate society about healthy sleeping habits, sleeping disorders and so on.
