  • The total number of programmes available represents the unique programmes available and not the sum of programmes available in each country. Our search shows that there exist medical specialist programmes in Mozambique, but the information was vague and difficult to report hence the exclusion from this table. Our search did not yield useful information on Comoro and Madagascar. There could be specialist programmes in the countries but are not included in this table because we did not find them in the search.
