Get Well Soon: History's Worst Plagues and the Heroes Who Fought Them - Jennifer   Wright

"The downside is that we often don't think about those suffering from tuberculosis at all. The disease is still around, it's still contagious, and despite the fact that the vaccine costs approximately sixteen cents to produce, and $3.13 to buy, tuberculosis continues to ravage periphery countries."

Again with the weird geography. Maybe Wright is a a kind of Flat Earther that puts presumably richer countries at the centre and poorer ones around the edge? Regardless, it's not exactly absent from the richer countries anyway.
