Abstract

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 includes reducing maternal and child mortality by 50% by 2030. Leading global public health experts have begun to realize the importance of data visualization for understanding the causes of death and best practices in reducing mortality. Modern textiles are receiving increasing attention in healthcare improvement. The use of textiles for preventing injury including infections, diseases spread by insects, water-borne parasites, and in treating many medical conditions is constantly expanding in healthcare. Innovation in medical textiles and many other forms of textiles is playing a major role in reducing mortality in the world.
