There’s a crisis underground. From the mines of Southern Africa, a river of one of humanity’s oldest diseases is flowing out across the world. Mine workers in sub-Saharan Africa have the highest rates of tuberculosis in the world, with more than 760,000 new cases per year connected to the mining industry. Undermined explores how TB affects the world and the economy, but most importantly, the humans who bear the burden of the disease first-hand.
