The transfer of knowledge is a crucial process for the functioning and continuation of training programs. The aim of this study was to determine how the transfer process works for the program JUVENIMSS and the factors that relate to the transfer of knowledge.


The study design was correlational, involving 122 health professionals. The Scale for the Measurement of Implementation Components was used. To analyze descriptive statistical data, overall index, instrument subscales, Kolmogorov-Smirnov goodness-of-fit test, and correlations were used.


The average age of the professionals involved in the program was 37 years (standard deviation n = 10.5), with a predominance of females (84 %), and 48 % social workers. Knowledge transfer for the prevention of STI / HIV / AIDS among adolescents is correlated with administrative support, administrative personnel management, leadership, training, supervision / technical support and performance evaluation.


Knowledge transfer showed areas of opportunity that should be considered by decision-makers to promote the implementation and continuation of preventive programs to prevent risky sexual behavior among adolescents.
