Medical Services International Inc (OTC: MSITF) wishes to announce that it has been approached by distributors in an additional 5 countries in Africa to start supplying the VScan HIV and TB rapid test kits. Currently it has been reported that the test kits being supplied to these countries are very inaccurate (less than 80% accuracy when compared to conventional tests). Inaccurate kits are worse than no kits as these kits miss HIV positive people, giving a false sense of security, therefore increasing the spread of HIV. The distributors have heard about the continued accuracy of the VScan HIV test kits and have been given copies of the test data from regulatory bodies in other countries showing the accuracy of the VScan HIV test kits.

The distributors have indicated that this could result in the purchase of up to an additional 2,000,000 VScan test kits per year. The Company believes that by the end of 2007, it will be the largest supplier of HIV, TB, Dengue Fever and Malaria rapid test kits in the world.
