Radio Veritas Asia (RVA) is a new media platform of the Catholic Church in the region. It aims to reach out to all corners of the world as a missionary by "sharing Christ to Global Asians."

RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station that broadcast via short wave across countries all over Asia, earning the tag as "The Voice of Asian Christianity."

Responding to developments in modern technology, RVA turned to the internet and new media to reach out to a global audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.

It has turned into a digital voice of the Church that engages both "global" and "local" Asians in continuous dialogue on religion, culture, and solidarity with the poor.

In 1974, the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences, through its Office of Social Communication, has assumed full responsibility over RVA, which has become a common project of the Church across Asia.
