For example can one get another license in a foreign country?

Which countries allow that?

    $\begingroup$ As long as the medical condition isn't disqualifying in the other country then why not? The US can't tell other countries who they can or can't give a license to. It's hard to say more than that without more information. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ of course in many (most?) countries the medical requirements are actually more strict than they are in the US... $\endgroup$

It completely depends on the condition. Just because you're denied a FAA medical it doesn't automatically mean you can't get one to operate in another country.

For example, colour-blind pilots can fly up to First Officer level in Australia, and we have no mandatory retirement age. But we are stricter on things like head injuries.

It's possible. One example: Bob Hoover got an Australian license and medical certificate while his US medical was revoked.
