Resumo: Objective: The aim of this study was to analyze the application of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) in Brazil from the active clinics and the population served considering the changes in the last resolutions of the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM), which enabled the use of the techniques for anyone, regardless of their health insurance system, gender or marital status. Methods: This paper was based on the analysis from the ""Reproductive Technologies and (in) fertility study: regulation, market and rights"". We used quantitative and qualitative methodologies. In this paper, we used the empirical data produced in the quantitative study. The quantitative online survey was carried out in 2016-2018, answered by 81 fertility clinics in Brazil about their performance in 2015-2016. We opted to use the REDCap Program, a web-based application for the construction and management of online surveys and databases. The questionnaire addressed the characteristics of services, practices performed, population served and existing forms of funding. Results: The questionnaires returned corresponded to 63.1% of the clinics in the southeast region. ART is mainly offered by 90.1% private clinics. We report that 63.8% of establishments have up to 20 employees; 44.5% have been in operation between 11 and 20 years. 85.1% of the clinics reported having treated non-Brazilian residents. Conclusions: There has been a significant increase in the provision of ART in Brazil. Access remains thoroughly dependent on its own financial resources. The new CFM resolutions have shifted from the prevailing concept of ""health care"" to ""assisting with new family configurations"".
