What Is Sleep Equity?
Why focus on equity? When conditions and circumstances are very different, equal treatment does not necessarily produce equitable outcomes. Applying an equity lens to sleep means understanding and addressing additional barriers to healthy sleep for many groups of people, particularly those in minoritized communities.
At a basic human rights level, we want to make healthy sleep available equally for all people.
– Dr. Dayna Johnson, Everyday Health
