In South Africa, there is a great shortage of rheumatologists, not more than 40 in the country as a whole.
According to the World Health Organization, there should be a Rheumatologist specialist for every 180 000 people, so the shortage is obvious in South Africa. Most of them are also attached to the training hospitals in urban areas.
