National Healthy Sleep Awareness Project

CDC awarded the American Academy of Sleep Medicine a 5-year (2013-2018) cooperative agreement to coordinate the National Healthy Sleep Awareness Project. The primary purpose of this collaborative program is to

  • Expand sleep health promotion and sleep prevention awareness;
  • Develop partnerships and collaborations to improve education and awareness about sleep hygiene;
  • Improve provider knowledge and skills about sleep health promotion;
  • Recommend a sleep health data collection model; and
  • Identify and disseminate sleep health-related policies.

The project focuses on the following Healthy People 2020 Sleep Health objectives:

  • Increase the proportion of persons with symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea who seek medical evaluation;
  • Reduce the rate of vehicular crashes per 100 million miles traveled that are due to drowsy driving;
  • Increase the proportion of students in grades 9 through 12 who get sufficient sleep; and
  • Increase the proportion of adults who get sufficient sleep.
