About Us

The mission of the Egyptian Scientific  Society of Sleep Medicine and Research  is to advance sleep health in Egypt. The Egyptian Scientific  Society of Sleep Medicine and Research  will fulfill this mission by promoting and encouraging education, research and patient care throughout Egypt. It’s fundamental for our society to advance knowledge about sleep and its disorders amongst both healthcare workers and the general public. This will include both education about the means to healthy sleep as well as awareness of the adverse consequences of sleep dysfunction on the quality of life and the health of an individual. To achieve these goals, the Egyptian Scientific  Society of Sleep Medicine and Research  will act in several directions such as sharing information through scientific congresses and organization of educational courses, symposia and workshops. The Egyptian Scientific  Society of Sleep Medicine and Research  will seek to collaborate with  other sleep societies across the world, supporting and encouraging worldwide exchange of clinical information and participation in scientific research related to sleep medicine.  1960391_10152672298177942_134144875_n
