Global Indoor Health Network's Mission is as follows:
Our mission is to proactively participate with others in the public and private sector to promote accurate health policy, strive for consistent standards, and advance education and awareness to ensure healthy indoor environments for individuals and families around the globe.
Global Indoor Health Network's home page states:
The people who have been harmed by contaminants inside our homes, schools and businesses come from all walks of life around the globe. They are white collar workers, blue collar workers, retirees, veterans, teachers, business owners, homeowners, tenants, children, parents and grandparents. They live in owned, mortgaged and rented houses or apartments--large and small, new and old. They are affluent, poor and middle class. They are able-bodied taxpayers and disabled citizens. They are the insured and uninsured by health, workers compensation and property casualty insurance companies. They depend on integrity in medical science within teaching facilities and within the courts to protect their health and safety and the health and safety of their families. They represent the melting pot of citizens around the world.
