We celebrated World Narcolepsy Day, Sept. 22, 2021 with an international broadcast, “Narcolepsy Around the World.” People living with narcolepsy joined us from Australia, China, Poland, Germany, Israel, Angola, and Brazil to share their stories and perspectives on awareness, diagnosis, treatment, and support.

Narcolepsy Around the World Video & Toolkit
Narcolepsy Nerd Alert toolkits accompany each broadcast. The toolkits are designed for people living with narcolepsy and their loved ones to offer new tools, tips, and perspectives on navigating narcolepsy.
World Narcolepsy Day is dedicated to raising awareness of narcolepsy on a global scale. Established by 24 patient advocacy organizations across 6 continents in 2019, World Narcolepsy Day unites the international narcolepsy community to inspire action, increase public knowledge, and elevate the voices of the 3 million people living with narcolepsy worldwide. Together, we can reduce delays in narcolepsy diagnosis, reduce stigma and improve outcomes. Get involved and use the hashtag #WorldNarcolepsyDay.
