"The nature of sleep and the disorders that affect it are not well understood by our community. A large part of our lives is spent asleep. Until recent years, the importance of good sleep to our health and well-being has been underestimated.
Problems with sleep are very common. They may occur because of poor sleep habits and insufficient time in bed, or as the result of a specific sleep disorder such as snoring, obstructive sleep apnoea or insomnia. Addressing all of these issues is the key to improving the health, safety, productivity and quality of life of affected people."
