RUSAL is one of the Republic of Guinea’s biggest investors, and is actively aiding the local government in the fight against western Africa's Ebola outbreak. Since August 2014, the company has provided logistic support to the anti-epidemic brigade of Russia’s Rospotrebnadzor and has established a mobile anti-epidemic research laboratory in Guinea.

In November RUSAL began preparations to deploy a 200-bed Russian Defense Ministry mobile hospital in Guinea.

RUSAL owns several large mining operations in Guinea and provides employment to about 1,500 local residents.
