Visiting what is now the Russian Federation, she photographed subjects including nutrition, urbanization, profiles of healthcare professionals, and occupational health conditions. Ms Jacot's photographs were published in a special issue of the World Health magazine in March 1969 entitled Health, Labour and Productivity.
