Is surrogacy also possible for singles or just for couples only?

Resolution 2.121/2015 of the Federal Council of Medicine establishes the necessary conditions to be able to carry out a surrogacy process in Brazil. It indicates that this reproductive method can be accessed for any medical condition that prevents or contraindicates pregnancy to the intended mother and in cases of homosexual couples.

Therefore, in the case of women, it is not clear whether they should have a partner or not. In principle, single women, lesbian couples and heterosexual couples could have access to this technique due to medical incapacity to gestate. However, single men are not mentioned.
