Guiding Principles

Advancing Sleep Research

Project Sleep advocates for robust federal research funding to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of sleep and to develop novel treatments, early detection tools, and prevention strategies for people living with sleep-related conditions. Likewise, we support federal data collection and survey efforts to better understand population-wide sleep trends.

Accelerating Treatment Options

People with sleep-related conditions need a seat at the table throughout the clinical research process. This is why Project Sleep is passionate about bringing the perspectives and priorities of people living with sleep disorders and their loved ones into clinical research.

Ensuring Access to Healthcare

Access to healthcare providers, services and treatments is essential to improve outcomes for all those living with sleep-related conditions. Project Sleep supports policies that improve access to healthcare resources, including comprehensive, affordable, and non-discriminatory health insurance.

Furthering Education, Awareness and Training

Project Sleep supports policies that increase sleep health and sleep disorders education, awareness and training opportunities.

Addressing Sleep Health Disparities

Project Sleep worked with the sleep health disparities research community to develop specific sleep health disparities policy recommendations.
