Sleep-related illnesses should receive the same sympathy and understanding from the general popula-tion as any other. Changing this will take time, but we will achieve it by educating the population regarding health and training our professionals in sleep disorders. In the end, everyone, doctors, patients and society will be thankful. Healthy sleep, in addition to being a vital need, is a right of all citizens.
