About Guinea

The West African nation of Guinea is a predominantly Muslim country, home to a population of approximately 12 million people, with natural beautiful landscapes on the ocean, close to the mountains, and in the shade of the forests. The country is estimated to have the largest reserves of bauxite in the world, and is one of the largest producers of the mineral. The agricultural sector provides a subsistence livelihood for nearly 80 percent of the population.

Despite massive mineral, hydroelectric, and agricultural potential, it is one of the poorest countries in the world, due in good part to a history of weak governance that is only gradually being overcome. However, following a largely peaceful and fair presidential election in October 2015 and the end of the Ebola outbreak in 2016, the country is once again on a positive trajectory. Our work increases quality health services, with a focus on malaria. USAID also supports economic growth for equitable and sustainable prosperity in Guinea by promoting inclusive agriculture sector growth, enhancing farmer productivity, and enabling a favorable agribusiness environment. We work to increase citizen engagement with more effective and accountable government institutions and processes.
