This week in PLoS Medicine: Rape with extreme violence; Increasing access to surgery in Sub-Saharan Africa; Why is TB more common in men than in women?; and more!

Read the new papers published in PLoS Medicine this week, including a Health in Action piece that discusses rape with extreme violence (REV), a destructive and sadistic behavior systematically perpetrated by different armed groups in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, a Policy Forum in which an international team of 42 experts lays out 4 recommendations on how to improve access to surgical services in Sub-Saharan Africa, and a Research in Translation piece that reviews the key research that has examined why TB is almost twice as common in men than in women.

Also published this week, a Research Article that investigates the association between abnormal blood glucose levels and cancer risk, and the December Editorial in which the PLoS Medicine Editors offer some suggestions for New Year’s resolutions for authors, reviewers, readers, and editors to consider.
