Daiva Repečkaitė is a Lithuanian multimedia journalist covering health, inequalities, and environmental issues.
In the past, she investigated confinement of people with mental disabilities, alleged mistreatment of women while giving birth, and dubious removal of trees in a national park in Lithuania.
She and her colleagues have received Journalismfund Europe's grants to look into vaccine hesitancy around Europe in the project “Antivaxxers between fake news and personal concerns” and to investigate substandard cycling infrastructure built using EU funds in “Cinderella Cyclists” — a research she later continued as a Policy Leader fellow at the European University Institute in Florence.
Daiva speaks Lithuanian, English, German, Russian and Hebrew, as well as some Italian, Japanese and French. She is mostly based in Malta.
