WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) — The president of Ghana will be visiting Brandeis University to discuss the challenges facing his country, the West Africa region and the entire African continent.

President John D. Mahama is scheduled to speak Monday. He's chairman of the 15-member Economic Community of West African States.

Mahama will give a speech titled "The Promise of Africa" about the current growth and development on the continent and the need for the international community to support and encourage that development. He also will highlight Ghana's efforts to attain economic growth and reduce poverty in charting a sustainable course as a stable middle-income country.

Although Ghana has not had any reported cases of Ebola, Mahama has called out the international community for isolating the countries most affected by the outbreak.
