Medical Services International (MSI) expects to sell up to 2 million VScan HIV test kits per year in the Caribbean, as it expands its presence in the region. Following the company's success in Belize, where it is extending its distribution network, it has also begun to distribute the kits in Haiti. The VScan kit is undergoing further testing as part of the approval process in Jamaica and has begun testing in the Dominican Republic. The Caribbean has a permanent population of 14 million; the region's transient population stands at around 24 million per year. The Edmonton, Alberta company's forecast is based on a reported 20% incidence of HIV in the region.
