GIHN Papers
September 2017 Announcement:

The Global Indoor Health Network is excited to announce our new papers.  

These new papers replace our December 17, 2012, position statement that was titled "Common Toxins in Our Homes, Schools and Workplaces."

We took the topics in our 2012 position statement and separated them into individual papers. We updated and expanded each topic and added additional references.

Here are the links to our new papers:
Additional papers are currently in process and will be released in the near future.

Please share these new papers with your families, friends and colleagues and help us raise awareness about the health effects of indoor air pollution.
It is staggering to comprehend the enormous impact on our global society as literally millions of individuals and families are harmed by contaminants inside our homes, schools and workplaces. The financial costs are equally staggering with estimates in the hundreds of billions of dollars.

As stated in a 2010 report by the World Health Organization:

Clean air is a basic requirement of life. The quality of air inside homes, offices, schools, day care centres, public buildings, health care facilities or other private and public buildings where people spend a large part of their life is an essential determinant of healthy life and people's well-being.

It is time we paid more attention to the air we breathe.

It is time for our national and world leaders to develop a comprehensive public health response to this devastating epidemic that has the potential to cripple our individual and collective futures.

We have highlighted the extensive research and look forward to collaborative efforts in this search for better health and safer living and working conditions.
